DALLAS, PA – Conservative Republican Congressional candidate Chris Hackett today received the endorsements of two major conservative, pro-family groups, Pennsylvania Eagle Forum and Concerned Women Political Action Committee (CWPAC). These endorsements come on the heels of a prominent Pennsylvania and national pro-business group's embrace of the Hackett candidacy.
Pennsylvania Eagle Forum is an affiliate of national Eagle Forum, a leading national pro-family grassroots organization with over 80,000 members. Fran Bevan, President of Pennsylvania Eagle Forum had this to say about Chris Hackett:
"Pennsylvania Eagle Forum supports Chris Hackett for Congress because his strong pro-family values and his commitment to those values that strengthen families, communities and country are important to our country and our world. We are pleased that Chris Hackett has taken up the banner for smaller, less-intrusive government, healthy families and communities, defense of life for the unborn and those unable to speak for themselves, and parental rights and responsibilities. We admire his willingness to offer solutions for keeping our country and our borders safe."
Concerned Women Political Action Committee was founded by pro-family leader Beverly LaHaye, who also founded Concerned Women for America, the largest women's policy organization in the United States, with over 500,000 members. Mike Mears, Director of State Legislative Relations for Concerned Women for America, said this about Chris Hackett:
"CWPAC endorses Chris Hackett for Congress because he will be a leader in fighting for the sanctity of human life, American sovereignty, and traditional values. He will not just vote the right way in Congress, but will be a powerful voice advocating for strong families, strong border control, and strong national defense."
Pennsylvania Eagle Forum and CWPAC join the pro-business Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) who recently also endorsed Chris Hackett for Congress. Michael Gibson, President of the Eastern PA chapter of the Builders and Contractors, said, "Mr. Hackett will provide the fiscal responsibility needed to cut taxes, reduce the federal budget deficit and create job growth for the district."
In response to this strong support from leading conservative organizations, Chris Hackett said, "It's an honor to receive the support of so many like-minded conservatives in the pro-family and pro-business communities, and to have them join our strong grassroots team. I look forward to proudly carrying the conservative banner into the fall election and into Congress. America must get our fiscal house in order, secure our borders, and safeguard traditional values, and I will fight to do that every day in Congress."
