FALLS CHURCH, Va., Feb. 21, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Public Advocate president Eugene Delgaudio is proud to announce the start of Public Advocate's Official 2014 Senate Candidates Survey on Family Values.
Delgaudio said in a statement:
"In the past, we have used candidate surveys to defend traditional values and real marriage, such as the 2012 Presidential Campaign.
"A Public Advocate volunteer made national headlines by capturing a major party nomination for U.S. Senate in the 2012 election cycle as well.
"And Public Advocate made national headlines again in 2013 as a result of an earlier simple survey program in a state legislative race in Colorado which focused attention on two local races in one neighborhood.
"In 2014 Public Advocate is focusing initially on seven United States Senate races for the 2014 election cycle. All the serious candidates in Colorado, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina have received our surveys so far, with the letters for 14 other states going out later in March for a total of 21 targeted races.
"We are currently preparing survey packets for the candidates in Georgia, Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Virginia, Wyoming, New Mexico, Mississippi, Maine and Alaska.
"This Public Advocate 2014 Senate Candidates Survey addresses critical issues facing our country -- issues every US senator will eventually be called on to deal with.
"Candidates are being asked if they will oppose legislation -- the Gay Bill of Special Rights, the Homosexual Classrooms Act and the Offense of Marriage Act -- supported by the Homosexual Lobby, resist efforts of certain courts to overturn pro-family state laws, and investigate allegations of abuse of Christians in the US military.
"Many of the incumbent senators in these races felt the pressure of Public Advocate's supporters last year during the fight over the Gay Bill of Special Rights (misleadingly named the Employment Non-Discrimination Act).
"Senators Kay Hagan (NC) and Mark Pryor (AR) both ignored the will of their constituents by publicly supporting and voting for this bill.
"Senator Lamar Alexander (TN) quietly helped the bill out of committee and then refused to make a public statement against the bill -- despite hearing from thousands of constituents asking him to do exactly that.
"Family values, the rights of parents, and the sanctity of real marriage are issues on the forefront of the American political discussion.
"Pro-Family states are being bullied by the Homosexual Lobby and the courts from coast to coast. President Obama is demanding the passage of radical legislation -- and threatening to pass it by executive order if he does not get his wish.
"The U.S. Senate is currently controlled by a radical caucus in the pocket of the Homosexual Lobby. Under their influence, the Gay Bill of Special Rights passed in the Senate for the first time since the 1990s. And there are many more issues that must be addressed in the last two years of Obama's presidency.
"A bold pro-family voice is more important than ever in the Senate, and American voters need to know about their candidates. Completed surveys not only inform constituents where the candidates stand on issues, but also provide us with the tool to hold these politicians accountable when in office.
"The deadlines for the completed surveys range from February 15 to March 23rd, depending on the specific primaries. If these surveys are not completed in the given time, Public Advocate supporters will be informed which candidates are ducking the issues -- and asked to contact the candidates directly."
