Washington, D.C.: Eagle Forum PAC, a conservative public policy organization founded by pro-family leader Phyllis Schlafly, is proud to endorse State Senator Kyle McCarter to represent the 15th District of Illinois. Mrs. Schlafly released the following statement:
“Now that John Shimkus has spent nearly twenty years in Washington, it’s clear that he is part of the problem. He repeatedly supports irresponsible spending bills that add to our enormous debt. Just this Congress, he’s voted to keep money flowing to President Obama’s priorities, such as executive amnesty and Planned Parenthood. We can’t change our direction as long as Republicans like John Shimkus continue to surrender to liberals in Congress and the executive branch.
“Kyle McCarter has been a champion for conservative principles during his time in the Illinois State Senate. He has fiercely defended the American family, unborn life, and traditional marriage, even in the midst of tremendous pressure. He has proven in his career as an entrepreneur and business leader that he will protect American jobs and workers.
“President Obama has repeatedly attacked the very foundation of our nation, and Republican leaders in Congress have failed to respond in a meaningful way. We cannot continue business-as-usual and expect different results. We need Kyle McCarter in Congress to help us reclaim the values that made America great.”
Eagle Forum PAC supports candidates who are committed to a conservative philosophy of limited government, national sovereignty and traditional values.
