Senate candidate Jerry Moran has picked up two endorsements since the start of the week. On Monday, National Right to Life Political Action Committee endorsed the current congressman, noting his committee to “renewing the culture of life.”
“National Right to Life Political Action Committee is pleased to endorse you for election to the United States Senate from the state of Kansas. This endorsement reflects your commitment to renewing a culture of life, not only in Kansas, but throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress. Recently, Democrats in Congress voted to enact President Obama’s health care legislation over your objections, which will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion on demand, and promote the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments. Your support is needed to reverse the pro-abortion and rationing effects of that health care legislation.”
On Tuesday, Moran picked up the support of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund.
“Jerry Moran is a steadfast supporter of our freedom,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “He has an unwavering record of fighting for and protecting the Second Amendment for all law-abiding Americans and has earned the trust of Kansas gun owners.”
Moran wasn’t the original pick of either group for the U.S. Senate seat. Prior to the primary election in August, the National Rifle Association’s Kansas chapter endorsed Rep. Todd Tiahrt, as did the National Right to Life Political Action Committee. The NRA also endorsed state Senator Tim Huelskamp in his race for Moran’s seat. The Huelskamp campaign credited the NRA endorsement with delivering votes on primary night. But apparently neither organization had enough leverage to help Tiahrt pull out a win.
