Right to Life Groups Endorse Huckabee
Tennessee Right to Life Next Pro-Life Group to Endorse Mike Huckabee
Tennessee Right to Life, on Monday, became the next pro-life group to issue an endorsement for Mike Huckabee — the former Arkansas governor many pro-life advocates consider the strongest pro-life candidate on the GOP side. As LifeNews.com has reported, Tennessee joins its sister affiliates in Missouri, Arizona, Georgia and Montana. Tennessee is one of the states with a primary election on Super Tuesday and Tennessee Right to Life officials told LifeNews.com on Monday they hope Republicans will side with Huckabee. The strength of Governor Huckabee’s public record on matters concerning the protection of human life and strong support among the organization’s grassroots members were key to making the decision, they said.
“The beauty of a grassroots organization is that your members set the priorities,” the group’s president Brian Harris said. “For pro-life Tennesseans, the election of a sincere, proven pro-life president is paramount.” “Our members recognize Mike Huckabee as ‘one of us’ and that enthusiasm is driven by his demonstrated record of leadership and sacrifice toward the shared cause of protecting life,” Harris added.
