CD8: Paton Endosed by Anti-Abortion Leader

Posted By on Wed, Aug 11, 2010 at 12:03 PM

Former state lawmaker Jonathan Paton, who is running against Jesse Kelly, Brian Miller and Jay Quick in the Aug. 24 GOP primary that will decide which Republican candidate faces Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in CD8, has been endorsed by Cathi Herrod, who heads up the Center for Arizona Policy.

The Center for Arizona Policy has pushed legislation to limit marriage to one man and one woman, restrict the rights of women to seek abortions and limit the ability of gays to adopt children.

Here's the release from the Paton campaign:

Jonathan Paton's solid leadership on life and family issues has earned him accolades and an endorsement from Cathi Herrod, Arizona pro-life and pro-family leader.

"Jonathan Paton is the leader Arizona families need in Congress to fight for our values," Herrod said. "Jonathan has been a strong and consistent advocate for the preborn, for families, and for protecting traditional marriage. Jonathan has been one of the

strongest champions of Arizona's scholarship tax credit program standing up for parents and school choice and working to protect private schools from government involvement. Jonathan is the candidate who can defeat Gabrielle Giffords, and I'm proud to support him."

"It is truly an honor to receive this endorsement from Arizona's strongest family values advocate," Paton said. "I am proud to have fought with Cathi Herrod to protect life and expand freedoms for families in education, and I look forward to taking these important causes to Congress."
