Catholic Families for America Endorses Marco Rubio
CFA Executive Director: “For all people of faith, but especially those who are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, we strongly encourage them to support Marco Rubio.”
WASHINGTON, May 14 /Christian Newswire/ — Today Marco Rubio picked up a major endorsement in his race for the U.S. Senate seat in Florida. Catholic Families for America (CFA), one of the largest organizations of lay Catholics in the nation, praised Rubio for his pro-family, pro-life stance, as well as his commitment to a smaller, more efficient, and more virtuous federal government.
“Among the several dozen candidates for the U.S. House and U.S. Senate whom CFA plans to endorse, Marco Rubio is at the head of the class,” said CFA Executive Director Dr. Kevin Roberts. “His substantive, traditional values message, coupled with his upbeat approach, is a welcome tonic to our toxic public square right now.”
Roberts also commented that Rubio was a “natural fit” with CFA’s key policy objectives, which include preservation of the sanctity of life, pro-family tax policies, traditional marriage, and education reform. “This is even more true,” Roberts said, “when one considers that Mr. Rubio is the only true conservative in the race. It is imperative that, in 2010, we elect authentic leaders like Marco Rubio who will remain steadfast to the principles of smaller, more sensible, and more virtuous government.”
Roberts concluded, “For all voters, but especially those who are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church, we strongly encourage them to support Marco Rubio.”
Catholic Families for America is in the process of building state and local chapters across the country, to better facilitate what it calls its Catholic-Get-Out-The-Vote (CGOTV) efforts. CFA has offices in Austin, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
Florida’s GOP primary will be held August 24, 2010, and the general election is November 2, 2010.
