National conservative leader is former Executive Director of the Christian Coalition and Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition
(ESCONDIDO) Darrell Issa’s 50th District congressional campaign announced today that Issa has been endorsed by national conservative leader Ralph Reed. Reed is the former Executive Director of the Christian Coalition and is the Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition.*
One of the most influential voices in American and conservative politics, Reed joins an impressive group of pro-Trump, pro-life, pro-family individuals and organizations who have endorsed Issa’s surging candidacy. They include the National Right to Life Committee, Family Research Council Action, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, former Governor Mike Huckabee, and former Speaker Newt Gingrich. A just-released independent poll by the San Diego Union-Tribune and 10 News shows Issa beating his opponent Carl DeMaio by 6 points.
“I know Darrell Issa and have worked with him for years in Congress. He is a fearless champion for our conservative values, including the right to life. He is also a strong supporter of President Trump and his agenda. We need him back in Congress and I am proud to support him.” Reed said.
“Ralph Reed is one of the most influential conservatives in America and I’m proud to have his support,” Darrell Issa said. “My opponent Carl DeMaio is a pro-abortion Never Trumper who supports sanctuary cities and I’m pleased voters are joining my campaign as they learn more about Carl DeMaio’s liberal record.”
