April 18th: Rally to thank Reps. Brat and Garrett for standing strong

RE: An event happening in Gordonsville to thank Reps. Dave Brat and Tom Garrett for standing strong for a real repeal of Obamacare.

Members of the House Freedom Caucus stood strong on Obamacare repeal, and rejected the AHCA because it was simply bad policy that didn't dismantle the regulatory framework of Obamacare.

It's a critical time in the Obamacare repeal fight, we must gather together to show Reps. Brat and Garrett that we will continue to support them for doing the right thing.

Event: Thank you rally for Reps. Dave Brat and Tom Garrett
Location: The Pavilion at Wolftrap Farm
17379 Wolf Trap Drive Gordonsville VA 22942
Date and time: April 18, 2017 from 7-9pm

If we can count you in, please RSVP here.

We hope you can join us as we encourage Reps. Brat and Garrett to continue fighting for a repeal of Obamacare!

Because of the importance of this election, Liberty University is delighted to invite you to join us for a Republican Gubernatorial Primary Candidate Debate here on Thursday, April 13, 2017 from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm.  

 

The debate will feature the three candidates seeking the Republican nomination: Ed Gillespie, Corey Stewart, and Frank Wagner. The only state-wide televised debate for this primary election will be moderated by Len Stevens from Liberty University and Mark Spain from WSET ABC-13.  

 

We also hope you will join us for the reception immediately following the debate that will be held in honor of the candidates and in celebration of Thomas Jefferson's 274th birthday.

 

The debate will be hosted by the new Center for Law and Government in collaboration with the Liberty University School of Law and the Helms School of Government and will be held at the state-of-the-art Concert Hall in the Center for Music and the Worship Arts (School of Music).

Family Research Council Congratulates Neil Gorsuch on His Confirmation to the Supreme Court

April 7, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Senate today voted to confirm Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch to serve as an associate justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, filling the seat left vacant by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away in February of last year.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement in reaction:

"History was made today, not just in the drama that preceded the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, but in the determination of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to allow the American people to address what has become one of the most polarizing areas of American politics.

"Leader McConnell is to be commended for holding fast to historical precedent of not allowing an outgoing president to pack the Court with ideological jurists on his way out of the White House. The Supreme Court vacancy after the death of Justice Scalia became a defining issue of the 2016 presidential election. President Trump made history by telling voters who he would appoint to the Court by providing a list -- the American people chose him and he in turn chose from the list, keeping his promise.

"We celebrate the confirmation of a justice who we anticipate will keep his promise to adhere to a textual and originalist view of the Constitution," Perkins concluded.
