Citizens United Political Victory Fund (CUPVF), the affiliated PAC of Citizens United, issued the following statement in support of Senator James Lankford for United States Senate from Oklahoma.
“Citizens United Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse Senator James Lankford for re-election because he is a full-spectrum conservative. He fights for the unborn; he fights to protect small businesses from the horrible economic impacts of Obamacare; and he fights against bad nuclear deals with Iran, the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism,” said David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United.
“Most recently, Senator Lankford’s leadership on defunding Planned Parenthood and in support of The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is one of the biggest reasons conservatives are rallying behind his re-election,” Bossie continued. “Senator Lankford’s courageous speech on the Senate floor about the atrocious Planned Parenthood videos was a watershed moment in the fight to defund Planned Parenthood. He brought the issue forward to millions of Americans and we are proud to stand with him in this ongoing fight.”
“Additionally, Senator Lankford is leading the charge to protect religious liberty in the U.S. Senate. The Health Care Conscience Rights Act would provide an exemption for healthcare providers from enforcement of the HHS mandate, which requires all employer health plans to provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion inducing drugs. This critical protection ensures that healthcare providers will not have to pay a government fine for honoring their conscience and religious beliefs,” Bossie added.
“The bottom line is that Senator Lankford understands that Washington is broken and that bold reforms are needed in many critical areas, such as federal spending and border security. Senator Lankford will be a decisive conservative voice in these debates in the days, months, and years to come,” Bossie concluded.
