FRC Action, the political action committee of the Family Research Council, is endorsing Jeff Landry in his bid to be Louisiana's next Attorney General.

"I am honored to be endorsed by Family Research Council Action as we work to bring honesty, integrity, and conservative principles to the Attorney General's Office," expressed Jeff Landry, a former law enforcement officer and congressman. "The FRC and I work to ensure human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives. As Attorney General - I will continue to do all I can to defend religious freedom, protect the sanctity of life, and support family values."

Tony Perkins, President of FRC Action, endorses Landry in this letter below:

"Your background as a Congressman and law enforcement official makes you an exceptional candidate for Attorney General. You have proven that you will champion the core values of our country; faith, family, and freedom. We have also witnessed your staunch defense of the Constitution, including our Second Amendment rights," wrote Perkins.

"As a resident of Louisiana, this race is of particular interest to me. Louisiana is looking for an Attorney General who will unashamedly stand for truth and will challenge the Left's notion that government knows best. We need a strong leader who will fight for Louisiana's values," continued Perkins.

"We at FRC Action are confident that you will be a strong advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for traditional family values. Once again, we are pleased to offer our endorsement and will urge those who care about the future of the family and constitutional government to support you as well," concluded Perkins.

Recently, Landry also received an endorsement from former U.S. Senator and winner of the 2012 Louisiana Republican presidential primary Rick Santorum in Landry's bid to oust incumbent Buddy Caldwell this fall.
