Howell racks up endorsements in campaign for state Senate

State’s leading pro-life group, 2nd Amendment organization award nods

Gary Howell, candidate for state Senate in the 14th District, continues to rack up endorsements from leading organizations around West Virginia.

The West Virginians for Life Political Action Committee (WVFL PAC) has announced its endorsement of Howell, as has the West Virginia Citizens Defense League (WVCDL).

WVFL PAC is the internal PAC for West Virginians for Life, the state pro-life organization. WVFL is affiliated with the National Right to Life Committee and is working through education and legislation to build a society where innocent human life is respected, from conceptioon until natural death.

Brian Louk, WBFL Executive Director, stated, “We commend Mr. Gary Howell for pledging to protect unborn children from abortion on demand.”

The WVCDL is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, all-volunteer, grassroots organization of concerned West Virginians who support an individual’s right to keep and bear arms for defense of self, family, home and state, and for lawful hunting and recreational use.

In its endorsement process, WVCDL-PAC evaluated the records of incumbent legislators and asked all legislative candidates to complete a questionnaire on their views concerning several legislative issues important to gun owners.

“I’m thrilled that my commitment to issues important to the people of the 14th District is recognized by leading advocacy groups around West Virginia,” said Howell. “In the Senate, I’ll work hard to bring about the positive changes we need to improve our district and our state for all its residents.”

The 14th Senate district covers all or parts of the counties of Barbour, Grant, Mineral, Monongalia, Preston, Taylor and Tucker.
