Why are so many people investing so much attention in a congressional special election in Georgia?
Paul Weber, president and CEO of Family Policy Alliance, explains what’s happening and who the organization is recommending in the race.
Here’s the election-related ad from Family Policy Alliance of Georgia.
This past election proved to be a huge success for conservatives in Kentucky.

The 2016 election was full of surprises. Your support of Family Policy Alliance’s efforts made for some great results.
Here’s a graphic that outlines how your partnership made a difference!
The vice-presidential debate is now long over and forgotten. But toward the end of the debate, both candidates—self-proclaimed Christians—were asked to “discuss in detail a time when you struggled to balance your personal faith and a public policy position.”
Democratic candidate Tim Kaine responded: “I try to practice my religion in a very devout way and follow the teachings of my church in my own personal life. But I don’t believe that in this nation, a First Amendment nation, where we don’t raise any religion over the other, and we allow people to worship as they please, that the doctrines of any one religion should be mandated for everyone.” He went on to say that he and Hillary Clinton support Roe v. Wade and “a woman’s right to choose.”
In contrast, Republican candidate Mike Pence, now vice president-elect, said: “I would tell you that for me the sanctity of life proceeds out of the belief that . . . where God says before you were formed in the womb, I knew you, and so . . . I sought to stand with great compassion for the sanctity of life.” He continued, “so for me, my faith informs my life.”
One’s natural response was to paraphrase the Constitution and a Supreme Court ruling to justify his support for abortion on demand. The other’s was to cite God’s Word and how it directs his steps.
Both men’s faith teaches personhood at conception. Yet, only one aligns his actions with his faith.
We saw during that debate the contrast between a politician and a statesman—a person who stands firm and takes action (Dan. 11:32b) regardless of the personal consequences.
Your sacrificial gifts are training and discipling people like Mike Pence as Family Policy Foundation Statesmen. What a hopeful future we are building together!

As we prepare to spend time with family and friends this Thanksgiving, Family Policy Alliance wanted to thank you for your support and partnership during this election cycle.
With conservative majorities in the House, Senate and a conservative in the White House, we’re looking forward to making gains toward a nation where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive and life is cherished.
Because of you, Family Policy Alliance was able to work shoulder to shoulder with some amazing, godly public servants and help them retain or gain an elected office. We were instrumental in 24 out of 30 races in which we were involved – that’s an 80% win rate!
Graduates of our Statesmen Academy were successful in 14 out of 16 races – an 88% win rate!
We were able to use mailers, television, digital ads, newspaper submissions, radio and email to inform voters and help them unleash their citizenship.
But without your prayer and partnership, we couldn’t have done this amazing work. Thank you for walking with us and allowing us to impact our world.
May this Thanksgiving be one of the best for you and your family.
