(COLUMBUS) – The Ohio Right to Life Society PAC today announced its endorsements of Ohio’s federal candidates in contested races for the March 6th primary elections.
“The 2012 congressional elections will determine the pro-life balance of power in Washington D.C. Too many pro-life initiatives have been stalled by our pro-abortion president and his allies in leadership. We are asking all Ohioans to consider the unique opportunity we have before us to transform our federal government in order to place women’s health and the lives of their unborn children as a top priority,” said Mike Gonidakis, on behalf of the Ohio Right to Life PAC. “As pro-life Ohioans, it is our responsibility to support these endorsed candidates.”
“The Ohio Right to Life PAC is proud to endorse Josh Mandel for the United States Senate. Throughout his life and political career, he has been a strong defender of the rights for the unborn,” said Marshal Pitchford, Chairman of the Ohio Right to Life PAC. ”Similarly, the slate of endorsed candidates for Congress have each expressed their dedication to the defense of life,” said Pitchford.
The candidates endorsed by Ohio Right to Life PAC are a diverse group of Ohioans with plentiful experience. Ohio Right to Life PAC endorsed candidates for the United States Senate and House of Representatives are as follows:
United States Senate
Republican State Treasurer Josh Mandel
United States House of Representatives
Republican Congresswoman Jean Schmidt – District 2
