This week, a princess was born in our state. My daughter, Audrey Noel Muzio was born 7 lbs. 6 ounces on August 3rd, and she is cherished by her father – as she has been since the moment I found out about her existence last Christmas.

Before the dawn of time, the Lord planned for Audrey, He knew everything about her, and He saw fit to place her in my family. In the womb, He knit her together – designing her to accomplish His purpose. What a blessing and privilege it is to be the father of this image bearer!

When I look at Audrey, I am overwhelmed with joy. She possesses her mother’s beauty, and I already see elements of my bride’s personality as well as aspects her 3 brothers. Though just days old, she is both a combination of many things that already make my family special and a unique person who brings something new that we never knew we were missing.

I love Audrey, and I cannot wait to cherish every moment with her. What’s certain for Audrey is that she will be loved very much – by me and her mother, by Peyton, Cade, and Jarrett, by many others who already care for her, and, most importantly, by her Heavenly Father.

But, and here’s where I’m going to be a shameless father, the world Audrey will grow up in is far from certain.

Audrey was blessed to be born in the United States of America – and in the greatest state of the 50 – and in a time (pre-COVID) of unprecedented economic advancement. Yet, unlike any other election in American history, this November features an entire slate of candidates committed to undermining the core of what has made “being born in America” a privilege unique to the history of the world. Frankly, they hate what has made our nation great, and they hate the free conditions that have allowed for innovation and prosperity.

What’s worse is that, unlike any other election in American history, this November features an entire slate of candidates that are recklessly anti-science. They take the utterly illogical position that Audrey was not a person until she took her first breath days ago. And, they have the baseless belief that gender is a personal decision rather than a biological determination.

Unlike any election in American history, everything is on the line. American prosperity. The right to worship. Religious exercise in all aspects of life. The right to life. Reclaiming a runaway Court. The trajectory of nearly everything that will determine the future of the nation Audrey will grow up in will be determined in this election – with Georgia being foremost in deciding that outcome.

By no means is Donald Trump – or any candidate you’ll vote for in November, for that matter – perfect. But, there has never been a clearer set of contrasts between the America envisioned by the Right and the Left, and what happens in this election will set the course for my daughters’ early years.

For Audrey and for all in her generation, I’m humbly asking you to stand with us. Winning is critical, and, honestly, it’s personal. Can I count on you to support our voter outreach efforts with a generous donation of $25, $100, $500, or more today?

As a selfish father, I pray that the America Audrey will know will not be one where innocent life is snuffed out, gender is reinvented, church doors are barred shut, and all are vilified for their views – no matter how lovingly expressed – if they run counter to the left-wing mob.

In addition to Audrey, roughly 10,000 children took their first breath in American on August 3rd. To preserve the foundation of our nation and to forge a better country for them where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished – I humbly ask that you consider a donation today so that we can win big in November.

In closing, I want to say thank you to all who have prayed for and encouraged me and my wife throughout this pregnancy. Your friendship means more than you know.

A Proud and Hopeful Dad,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

We won a lot, and it feels good. We lost some, and those will sting for a while.

As I write this, votes are still being counted. That could go on for a bit. I’m confident that we’ve won the first quarter of the game – the primary election. We’re now onto the second quarter – the runoff election.

Here’s what we know: We’ve, once again, proven to be the preeminent force for shifting our state in a more conservative, God-honoring direction. We’re taking on the tough races, going against the special interests and the powerful, and we’re winning.

Here’s what we think: If things hold – and, given current margins, we fully expect they will – we have won 12 of the 15 competitive primaries we were involved in, including some key victories and major upsets. Our friend Erick Erickson even gave us a shoutout on the radio for our efforts this cycle!

Here’s what we need: We spent serious money on TV ads, direct mail, social media engagement, live calling, text messages, and more – reaching conservative primary voters in a BIG way. We left it all on the field. But now we have as many as 13 runoff campaigns we could engage in, and we need to replenish our warchest. Your generous donation today will be used 100% to reach voters in this runoff election.

The outcomes of these runoffs could be decisive in the next conservative legislative battles – remember the Heartbeat Bill passed by only one vote! If we nominate weak-willed moderates, we cannot tackle the next series of big issues. Can we count on you?

With a lower turnout model in the runoff expected, we may be able to reach a district for $2,000 per mail piece. Can this email pay for a mail piece? Can it pay for two?

You have been so generous with your support. If you feel led to help secure a more conservative team of legislators under the Gold Dome, I humbly ask for your support. This link sends you directly to our elections fund so that we can advance our values ahead of the August 11 runoff.

I’ll be updating you about the election results soon – probably in the next 24 hours. I expect those results to continue to show we won the first quarter. But, in the meantime, please prayerfully consider whether you can help us win the second quarter – winning for our values in the runoff elections.

On to Victory,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

The reality is that many people are hurting, and, even in the best of times, I hate asking for money. If you’re one of those whom this virus has negatively affected financially, please understand that our appeal to you isn’t for funding, it’s for prayer.

But, the reality is that we do need dollars, and, if you’re in a position to help, I’d greatly appreciate your support in helping us reach our goal of $12,460 by April 30th.

As you likely are aware, the Georgia primary election is June 9th, and it is critical to build on the conservative momentum in our state. Making our efforts all-the-more important, however, is the fact that pro-family incumbents cannot fundraise prior to this election, meaning they depend solely on groups like ours to defend them against liberal attacks!

In total, we’ve identified at least 34 primary races that we are closely monitoring. In most of those, we will make endorsements and work to turn out pro-family voters. In many, we will be mounting significant turnout and information campaigns to help our candidates win.

This is costly, but the cost is necessary.

The winners of these campaigns will set the tone for the general election in November as well as the make-up of the General Assembly and United States Congress – whether we will have a bold conservative direction or not.

To support our critical election needs, consider a generous donation today.

If you’re needing a tax deduction, you can support the Family Policy Foundation education and training efforts – currently matching funds up to $150,000 – here.

As I mentioned at the outset, I know folks are hurting. If you are in that category, I’d humbly ask for your powerful prayers and not your money. We live in a real world, and financial resources ae important. But, all the financial resources we could ever assemble will never come close to the powerful work of the Lord. We need all believers to ask God to show favor to our efforts.

Together, I believe that we will win. This virus has affected many things, but the fight for our values doesn’t stop. There will be a day when we return to normal, and, when that day comes, we must have assembled the elected personnel needed to forge a Georgia where God is honored, religious freedom flourishes, families thrive, and life is cherished.

Let’s work and pray toward that end.

To Victory,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

With the swearing in of Governor Brian Kemp and Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan, our state departed from the establishment status quo and embraced a new, more conservative governing philosophy that puts Georgians first.

The Kemp-Duncan team is transforming our state in powerful ways, but, to achieve our goals, we must to do our part to send strong allies for the movement to the General Assembly. That’s why I’m honored to announce our endorsement of Jason Anavitarte for State Senate.

I’ve had the privilege of getting to know Jason as we’ve advocated for our values at the Capitol and worked to support the leadership of our state. He’s the real deal, someone who cares deeply for his community, and an ally who will fight for our values.

Jason has proven himself as a devoted public servant in Paulding County and one of the key conservative voices in our state. He’s been a strong ally of Governor Kemp, and Geoff Duncan has already endorsed his candidacy. As we seek to change the culture under the Gold Dome – to one unafraid of the big issues and committed to putting you first – Jason has a big part to play.

As the leading organization behind the Heartbeat Bill, we are excited about the opportunity to elect another champion to this seat. Senator Bill Heath has been a stalwart, and he leaves a big hole to fill in the Senate. I’m grateful that the Lord has called Jason to fill it.

We cannot hope to continue the great progress we’ve seen unless we send reinforcements to the Capitol to fight alongside us, Brian Kemp, Geoff Duncan, and other great leaders. Without question, Jason Anavitarte is the conservative leader we need in the fight, and I implore you to stand with us in this critical campaign!

To Victory,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

From the moment the votes for the Heartbeat Bill were cast, an important election got even more critical. And, since that moment, we have been on the road, interviewing candidates, recruiting prospects, making sure that we were ready to defend those who fought for LIFE, and preparing to unseat radicals who oppose us at every turn.

Here in Georgia, we have a tremendous opportunity to send a powerful signal with:

The path to Senate control, the ability to gain a strong upper hand on the Supreme Court, and an opportunity to double-down on the right to life all run through Georgia. That’s why we’ve been so determined to forge a comprehensive plan to transform our culture at the ballot box.

Currently, we’ve identified 46 races that we feel will be highly competitive. We must defend many of the lead advocates of the Heartbeat Bill, and we have been working to flip the seats of 12 pro-abortion votes against it – an objective where we are close to finding a strong candidate in each of those spots. And, we must unite support behind the candidates that will advance our values nationally. Our goal is to gain seats – not merely hold the line.

That’s why this time period is so critical.

First, please be in prayer for the right candidates. So many races are won or lost based on who is running. Finding a credible, appealing, and hard-working candidate that matches a district isn’t easy. With March 2-6 being the qualifying period for office, I’m asking each of you to join us in prayer that the right candidates will step forward.

Second, I’m humbly asking for your support. Can you help us raise $2,500 by February 29th that will be used to support advocates for LIFE?

While the general election is even more critical than usual this year, we need to ensure that we use the primary to nominate those most willing to fight for our values with boldness and clarity. As the premier elections organization in the state, can we count on your support?

As a competitive person, I love to win. And, this election cycle, I believe we will. I see the energy and momentum as I travel the state, and we have some great candidates we’ll be supporting. But…this is a team effort. I’m grateful for your partnership in this plan.

To Victory,

Cole Muzio

Late last year, Governor Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler – a strong pro-life woman who is already making a major difference in Washington. The pick sent shockwaves across Georgia, and liberals who had their hopes set on taking the state ran scared. It’s why they’ve been unable to find a credible candidate to run against her!

But, now the Left is unleashing a new strategy. Under the leadership of Rep. Bob Trammell, whose seat Family Policy Alliance of Georgia® is working to flip, liberals are trying to change the rules of the election.

Tell your legislators to VOTE NO to the proposed changes TODAY!

Trammell and the pro-abortion liberals at our Capitol are colluding with Loeffler’s opponents to create a May election that would pull her away from fighting against the impeachment sham and make it harder for her to do the job Governor Kemp appointed her to do. This is a farce! It’s not about democracy; it’s about a power grab and about enhancing their chances for this Senate seat.

Normally, Family Policy Alliance of Georgia would hesitate to weigh in on election law. However, the integrity of the system is at stake and the clear motivation is to stack the deck against Senator Loeffler, who is partnering with President Trump to protect human life across the nation.

Please encourage your legislators to reject this liberal version of HB 757 TODAY! Specifically, ask your legislators to VOTE NO on HB 757 as amended.

We have made it easy to find the contact information you need.  Go to our Action Center and enter your zip code or address as prompted.

I hope you were able to rest this holiday season because, as we unleash biblical citizenship in 2020, there is much for the Georgia faith community to accomplish in the year ahead.

Those of you I’ve spoken with personally know how grateful I am for the growth, impact, and victories this organization achieved in 2019. Because of supporters like you, we’ve transformed the Georgia political landscape for the better!

Yet, you also know what a critical year lies ahead, and I hope you know the degree to which we are resolved to achieve new heights, incredible victories, and powerful change for our values. Our New Year’s resolutions don’t involve tipping the scales a bit or making minor adjustments – they are to deliver generation-defining victories for our state like:

Just a few short years ago, none of this would have been possible. But you have helped launch and build this organization into the leading advocate for our values right here in our state. You’ve helped save lives, elect godly leaders, and transform our culture.

Now, we must be resolved to do even more in 2020.

PLEASE PRAY. This year could not be more critical. Those opposed to our values are, likewise, resolved – except their objective is to undermine science, de-value human life, supplant the role of the family, undo the progress we’ve made, and violate both the Constitution and basic common sense. Will we exceed their resolute efforts to do harm with our fortitude to see good realized in our state?

In less than two weeks, the Georgia legislative session will begin – where we will have the opportunity to pass God-honoring legislation. Months after that, we will be in primary season, where we will work to ensure we have the most pro-family nominees possible. Then, in November, a general election that could define our state and our nation for decades to come will take place. And, in the midst of all of this, we will be at work to reach Georgians with the message of how the love of Christ can be displayed in the public square and shown in our public policy.

There will be no rest for the weary, and 2020 is not for the faint of heart. We are resolved for victory and will do whatever it takes to see Him glorified in our state. Christian soldier, I’m honored to fight alongside you.

Resolved for Victory,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

 

We’ve made great strides for our values in Georgia, and all of that was made possible because pro-family believers like you have turned out in force to elect those who would stand for what’s right.

That’s why we’re so excited that Jim Quinn has stepped forward to run for State House in District 152.

Jim Quinn is an unabashed pro-life, Christian conservative who will build on the success of the Heartbeat Bill, fearlessly defend religious freedom, and protect our children from the radical leftist agenda. As we fight for the conservative principles we share, proudly stand with Governor Kemp, and work for a stronger Georgia, I know Jim Quinn will be a strong partner and ally.


I’m so proud of the direction our state is headed, and, under the leadership of Brian Kemp and Geoff Duncan, I know we are just getting started. With Jim Quinn as your representative, you will have a strong voice to put Georgians first and fight for our values.

As a special election, the eyes of the state are on what you do on December 3rd. I fully encourage you to research the race and come to your conclusions. However, I’m excited to see how Jim Quinn has run his campaign – as someone who embraces faith, boldly articulates a pro-life, pro-family position, and is even willing to fight against the leftist agenda to put boys on girls sports team and in their bathrooms.

All people of faith should devote the time to making their voice heard in early voting or on December 3rd. We are counting on you!

For our families,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director

This week, we celebrated the epic pro-life victories this year and planned for the future with the “Together for Life” event sponsored by Congressman Jody Hice.

There is much cause for praise because of what He has done for life this year – using our ministry, other allies, and strong leaders we helped elect. But, there is also much work to be done.

Our mission statement isn’t just for a Georgia where we pass pro-life laws. It’s not for a Georgia where we have less abortions than elsewhere. It’s for a Georgia where life – ALL life – is cherished and recognized for what it is: wonderfully made and cherished by the Creator.

We are just getting started and there are plenty of ways you can partner with us:

  1. Education
  1. Policy
  1. Elections

There is much work to be done, but we are honored to have you partnering with us. Together, we can forge a Georgia where life is truly cherished!

For Life,

Cole Muzio
President and Executive Director
