Matt Salmon, former Congressman and candidate for Arizona's 5th Congressional District, today received the endorsement from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the most respected and well-known pro-life organization in America. NRLC plays an active role in assisting pro-life candidates and has endorsed former Congressman Salmon in his previous congressional campaigns. Salmon holds a perfect 100% rating by the National Right to Life for his recording of voting to protect life.
NRLC Executive Director David O'Steen stated, "Matt is a strong advocate for life. This endorsement reflects his commitment to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress. 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 send Matt to the U.S. House, where he can work to advance vital pro-life public policies."
"I am truly honored to be endorsed by the National Right to Life," stated former Congressman Salmon. "I have always stood on the side of protecting the unborn and this will remain one of my highest priorities when I return to Congress. I look forward to working with the NRLC to fight for pro-life policies, including the reversal of abortion-expanding measures within ObamaCare, and ensuring we always protect our most vulnerable."
