Family movement leaders endorse Kris Kobach for Senate

Dr. James Dobson, David Barton, and Donna Lippoldt Endorse Kris Kobach

Today, two of America’s most famous Christian leaders, Dr. James Dobson and David Barton endorsed Kris Kobach for the U.S. Senate. In addition, Donna Lippoldt of Culture Shield, an organization that is very well known in Kansas, also endorsed Kobach.

“Kris is a strong conservative who will do what it takes to ensure that the institution of family remains strong in America. His service in the pro-life movement is well-known, and we need him in Washington, D.C., now more than ever,” Dobson said. Dobson is one of the most influential evangelical leaders in the nation. He founded Focus on the Family in 1977 and the Family Research Council in 1981. He founded Family Talk in 2010 and currently hosts a similarly titled radio show broadcast on more than 300 stations nationwide.

“Unlike some politicians who waver in the face of attacks from the media and the Left, Kris stands firm in his faith and is never shaken,” Dobson said. “…For years, I have joined millions of people across America in praying that God would raise up leaders to restore this great nation. I am excited that Kris answered that call and has stepped up to offer his services to the people of Kansas.”

Barton says Kobach will be a pro-life champion in the U.S. Senate.

“He is an influential and articulate advocate for the pro-life cause,” Barton said. “I wholeheartedly endorse Kris Kobach for the office of U.S. Senator from Kansas. Kris and I share a passion for the Founding Fathers and their writings and we have served together on the RNC’s platform committee at the national convention. As a former professor of constitutional law, Kris is well-versed on the Founding Fathers’ vision for America. He will fight to protect the original understanding of our constitution.”

Barton is the founder of Wallbuilders, an organization dedicated to presenting America’s forgotten history and heroes with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which the country was built.

“Kris will be one of the biggest obstacles to the appointment of activist judges,” Barton said.

Donna Lippoldt, Wichita, founded Culture Shield, an organization that works to equip Christians to strengthen families in the home, the church and the government. Lippoldt currently serves as its executive director.

“Kris is a man of integrity, and he is a fighter,” Lippoldt said. “He will defend the Constitution, he will defend the unborn and protect religious freedom. We need him in the U.S. Senate, fighting for our Kansas values.”

Kobach said, “It is a great honor to have the support of Dr. James Dobson, David Barton, and Donna. Lippoldt. They have been in the trenches fighting for the right to life, for religious freedom, and for families for decades. When I am in the Senate I will forcefully defend those same values and the Constitution that protects them.”
