"As residents of Massachusetts and leaders in the ongoing struggle to preserve the institution of marriage and uphold the sanctity of life, we have seen the efforts of the liberal left here in Massachusetts to impose their agenda through judicial mandate. They have been able to impose their liberal agenda on the people because of the failure of our elected officials to stand up and fight.
"In order to preserve traditional
values and actually win back ground in the ongoing fight for our culture,
we need a leader who can articulate and fight for our values with compassion,
optimism, and consistency. We know consistent leadership when we
see it. For this reason, Senator Brownback is the clear choice."
