Dear Tarrant County Friends,

Along with our friends at Texas Values Action, Family Policy Alliance is very pleased to endorse Cheryl Bean in the runoff primary election in Texas House District 97.

Cheryl has been a leader in the fight for the values that we hold dear. She was the key leader to successfully battle liberal activists and require a Fort Worth charter school to use birth certificates to decide if students will compete in the boys choir or the girls choir. In 2023, Cheryl received a statewide award for her leadership on faith, family and freedom in Texas.

Top issues for Cheryl include:

Please consider this information as you vote early – or at least by this Tuesday, May 28.

Sincerely,

John Paulton
Vice President, State Alliances

 

Dear Friends,

The presidential election is now less than 6 months away! While we know a 2020 rematch between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is on the horizon, we don’t yet know who one of the vice-presidential candidates will be.

According to our last straw poll98% of social conservatives believe our nation is on the wrong track. That is a staggering number, especially considering that social conservatives are the largest voting bloc in the nation. We must make our voices heard on policy issues that affect our families as well as who will lead our nation’s policy in the White House.

With President Biden moving ahead on the Democrat ticket with Kamala Harris, only one question remains: Who will Donald Trump choose as his running mate?

Indications are that his decision is coming soon, which means time is running out to make our voices heard.

We launched the Social Conservative Vice-Presidential Straw Poll last month to learn what social conservatives thought about his options – and there are a lot of them.

Our straw poll includes about a dozen of the most talked-about vice-presidential prospects, as well as an opportunity for write-ins.

If you have not already done so, please take a moment today to weigh in on the VP race – we want to know what you think!

Together, we will make social conservative voices heard in the presidential election.

Best regards,

Robert Noland
Director, Audience Engagement

It’s no secret that we’re barreling toward a Trump vs. Biden rematch in 2024, and this election, more than most, will have an untold influence over the success of our American experiment. Life, liberty, family, and religious freedom are on the line.

But while most pundits assume that President Joe Biden will keep Kamala Harris as his running mate, leaving one side of the tired election story completely unchanged, the contest for who will accompany President Donald Trump to the top of the Republican ticket remains wide open.

Social conservatives now have a chance to quickly weigh in on who President Trump should select as his running mate.

As first in line for the presidency, vice presidents hold a significant amount of authority and responsibility. Fifteen of our nation’s vice presidents later became president themselves, either through the death of a president or later election.  Potential vice presidents should be well-vetted, with their reputations, policy positions, and experience scrutinized by all Americans.

Too many organizations manipulate their polling outcomes to produce a fit-for-media result, but here at Family Policy Alliance we know that social conservative voices should be elevated, not thrown under a rug. Our straw poll gives social conservatives the chance to weigh in on each of the presidential candidates’ top prospects for vice president.

Vote now to let your voice be heard.

Sincerely,

Robert Noland
Director, Audience Engagement

It wasn’t a surprising night, but it was massive nonetheless. Last night, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump each overwhelmed their remaining opposition in Super Tuesday contests around the nation, adding hundreds of delegates in the quest for their parties’ nominations.

President Biden swept the Democratic contests in 15 states. On the Republican side, only a Nikki Haley win in Vermont kept former President Trump from a clean sweep. As a result, Ambassador Haley is suspending her campaign today.

All of this means that, apart from a dramatic development, the November election will offer a repeat of the 2020 race: Biden vs. Trump.

If you are a voter in one of the Super Tuesday states, you had the chance to make your voice heard. But wherever you are, you can make your voice heard now by participating in the Social Conservative Straw Poll.

The groundwork has been laid for the presidential race, but so much is still to happen this election year. Most states still have primary elections to determine nominees for thousands of races – from state legislatures to governorships to congressional seats.

Please continue to stand with Family Policy Alliance and our state allies as we mobilize social conservatives and illuminate voters on where the candidates really stand.

Praying and Acting,

John Paulton
Vice President, State Alliances

Friends,

Today is Super Tuesday and there are presidential primary elections or caucuses in 15 states, more than any other day in the 2024 election.

Keep reading to see if you are in a Super Tuesday state and find out how you can vote in another way right now…no matter where you live.

Super Tuesday Voters Speak Up!

If you live in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont or Virginia, please remember to vote today.

In addition, Alaska and Utah residents have the opportunity to participate in party caucuses today as well.

What if You Are Not in a Super Tuesday State?

Even if you are not in a Super Tuesday state you can still vote today in the Social Conservative Straw Poll.

Recent months have seen the field of presidential candidates narrow significantly and we need social conservatives from every state to participate. In fact, as the field narrows, the social conservative vote becomes more and more impactful as we move toward election day.

We want to know who you support among the current candidates as well as your views on a few other burning issues.

Take the Social Conservative Straw Poll today and share it with your friends and family so they can vote too!

Sincerely,

Robert Noland
Director, Audience Engagement

It Wasn’t a Debate … It Was Better

This year’s most unique and revealing presidential campaign event was held in downtown Des Moines on Friday. Family Policy Alliance joined with our Iowa ally, The Family Leader, for the Thanksgiving Family Forum – a roundtable conversation with the leading Republican presidential candidates, based on polling.

In recent weeks, the Republican National Committee objected to the Forum on the grounds that it was a non-sanctioned debate. But the RNC dropped its opposition after agreeing with The Family Leader’s CEO, Bob Vander Plaats, that the Forum wasn’t a debate, but rather a unique opportunity to get to know what makes the candidates tick.

Approximately 800 people crowded in to hear from three of the four leading Republican candidates:Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Ambassador Nikki Haley and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. Former President Donald Trump was invited but declined to attend.

What they heard included revealing glimpses into the candidates’ lives. For example, all three candidates, led by Gov. DeSantis, shared personal stories about difficult situations, including miscarriages, that shaped their convictions on the sanctity of life.

They also answered challenging questions:

In the recent election in Virginia, issues like parental rights and abortion took center stage, which drew the interest of many social conservatives around the country. This was one of the most shocking off-year elections we’ve seen in a long time, so we invited an expert to break down the results and offer potential insight for future elections nationwide.

Joining the SoCon Report Podcast live today is Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation of Virginia, to help us break down what happened. With a remarkable seventeen years of experience fighting for pro-family values in Virginia, she is a valuable resource for dissecting this election. Ask her your questions in the comments of our livestream!
