Phoenix, AZ– In an overwhelming show of support, numerous conservative leaders endorsed John McCain’s reelection to the U.S. Senate, including including former Governor Jim Gilmore, Chairman of Citizens Against Govermnet Waste Tom Schatz, President of National Right to Life Carol Tobias, President of Family Research Council Tony Perkins, Congressman Chris Smith and President of Susan B. Anthony List Majorie Dannenfelser:

Jim Gilmore, Former Virginia Governor and member of the board of directors of the National Rifle Association:

“I’m proud to endorse a true American hero, Senator John McCain, for re-election.  Senator McCain’s leadership on national security issues, his tireless work to eliminate government waste, and his steadfast defense of Second Amendment rights are all good reasons for card-carrying conservatives like me to support him.

“The 2016 Senate elections will have a profound impact on America, and Republicans cannot afford to lose the Senate seat that has long been held by conservatives Barry Goldwater and John McCain.  I am convinced that Senator McCain is the only Republican who can hold this seat.  It’s time for conservatives and Republicans to unite, and time to re-elect Senator John McCain.”

Tom Schatz, Chairman Council of Citizens Against Government Waste:

“John McCain not only talks the talk, but walks the walk in the battle to safeguard taxpayer dollars. All too often, members of Congress tout their waste-fighting commitment on the campaign trail, only to see that fervor fade the longer they remain in Washington.  John McCain has never wavered in vigorously leading the fight for accountability and transparency in government, sparing no agency or program, and even calling out his colleagues when necessary.  He spearheaded a tireless crusade against wasteful and corruptive earmarks, which led to the 2011 moratorium on the practice, and he continues to push for a permanent ban on earmarks.

“John McCain is one of the few senators who possesses a proven track record of fighting for taxpayers not only when it is easy, but also when it is challenging.  At the dawn of a new presidency, it is imperative that John McCain remain as an indispensable leader in the Senate.  There is no one else in Arizona – and few across the country – who is such a determined, consistent, and dedicated fiscal conservative.”

Carol Tobias, President of National Right to Life: 

“All voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to return John McCain to the U.S. Senate, so that he can continue to work to advance vital pro-life public policies.”

Tony Perkins, President, Family Research Council:

“As Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee,  John McCain has worked tirelessly to defend religious liberty.  I know it because I have worked with him, and he has made religious liberty a top priority.”

Congressman Chris Smith, Chairman, House Pro-Life Caucus:

“John McCain and I have served together since he was first elected to the House in 1982.  Senator McCain has been a trusted ally in the pro-life cause and I’m glad we have him fighting for pro-life values in the Senate.”

Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List:

“Senator McCain is a steady and unwavering friend to unborn children and their mothers and we are proud to have him on the side of life.  He is a good listener, a strategic thinker, and a helpful ally in our fight to advance the right to life and protect the conscience rights of pro-life Americans.”
