Conservative Group Backs Sandy Adams Over John Mica
On Thursday, the Eagle Forum PAC and conservative leader Phyllis Schlafly chose sides in one of the most interesting Republican congressional primaries in the nation when they backed U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams over U.S. Rep. John Mica.
“Sandy is exactly the kind of leader we need in Washington,” said Schlafly in a statement. “She is a fierce defender of life with a proven record as an effective conservative leader.”
Schlafly pointed to Adams’ record in Tallahassee as well as in her one term in Congress.
“Dating back to her service as a state legislator, Sandy has always been a warrior fighting for sound pro-life, pro-family policies,” Schlafly said. “She led an effort to stop the state from issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens for the use of E-Verify to enable employers to confirm their employees’ citizenship. Sandy also fought harmful state mandates and tax increases and sponsored legislation rejecting Obamacare.
“In Congress, Sandy is an invaluable ally for pro-family conservatives,” continued Schlafly. “We need people with her insight, her experience as a law enforcement officer and her perspective, as a woman who overcame incredible obstacles to provide for her daughter and to pursue a position in public service to improve others’ lot in life.
“Sandy has always been known as a determined, principled fighter and as a representative who takes care of her constituents,” Schlafly said in conclusion. “We urge the voters of Florida’s 7th Congressional District to do yourselves and the country a favor and return Sandy Adams to Congress.”
