Statement from Governor Mike Huckabee, July 12th, 2012
"I'm pleased to announce my support of Dan Forest as North Carolina's next Lieutenant Governor, because like me, he believes in the sanctity of life, limited government, the Second Amendment, states rights, rule of law and self sufficiency. As I travel though out the United States, I occasionally meet people who stand out for the power of their convictions and their tireless efforts to advance the Conservative cause. Dan Forest is one of those people. I know firsthand the importance of having leaders in the state's capital. If we Conservatives are ever going to take back our government, on all levels, we must put forward principled Conservatives who are not just right on the issues, but also have stamina, energy and enough backbone to take the fight to the other side... and win."
--Governor Mike Huckabee

Washington, D.C. — Eagle Forum PAC, a conservative public policy organization founded by Phyllis Schlafly endorses Dan Forest for North Carolina’s Lieutenant Governor.
“Dan not only has the executive experience necessary for this job, he has the right principles to govern the state of North Carolina according to its citizens’ values,” said Schlafly.
“Dan respects the sanctity of human life and is a former Chairman of the Board of Wake Forest Pregnancy Support Services,” Schlafly noted. “He is committed to empowering parents to choose schools they believe will best serve their children, to cutting taxes and regulations to help small businesses and, especially important after the disappointing Supreme Court decision, he is committed to opting North Carolina out of ObamaCare.”
“I urge all North Carolina voters to vote for Dan Forest for Lieutenant Governor in the Tuesday, July 17th run-off, then again on November 6th. Please urge your friends and neighbors to do the same,” Schlafly concluded.
Eagle Forum PAC supports candidates who are committed to a conservative philosophy of limited government, national sovereignty and traditional values.

Throughout our state’s history, lieutenant governors have put their own personal touch on a job with a limited scope of powers. Dan Forest, one of the two GOP candidates for lieutenant governor still standing, would like his tenure in office to be marked by principled leadership in the areas of education and economic development.
Forest, an architect from Raleigh making his first run for political office, is facing off against Wake County commissioner Tony Gurley in a July 17th runoff.
I caught up with Forest on his way to Memorial Day festivities in Spring Lake — a small town outside Fayetteville which is home to quite a few service members and veterans from Fort Bragg. (He was taking a break from a home-schooling conference in Winston-Salem.) :
“We finished first in the primary thanks to hard work — outworking everyone else. That’s something we’re going to keep up through the runoff, the general election, and our time in office in Raleigh. We’ve been taking our message to all four corners of this state for the last two years. We’ve been to quite a few places where candidates typically don’t show up during campaign season. We’re letting people know how much we care — that we’re not going to forget about them once all the votes are counted.”

Governor, I endorse Dan Forest.
