in Statewide by

Saint Petersblog has learned that Marco Rubio will announce shortly that he’s being endorsed by Priests For Life National Director Father Frank Pavone and David Barton, founder and president of WallBuilders.

Read quotes from soon to be released press release below:

“Marco Rubio has been a champion in the ongoing struggle to advance the rights of our unborn brothers and sisters,” said Father Pavone.  “He has been both a servant and a voice for the vulnerable. Marco Rubio is a pro-life warrior.”

“I am honored to support Marco Rubio, who I am confident will be an effective advocate for working families and the values that have made America exceptional for over two centuries,” said Barton.  “Throughout his life, Marco has been a friend of the family.  He has worked to defend life and uphold our traditional values, while being a fiscally responsible steward who understands that today’s tax-and-spend policies have devastating consequences on working families. Because the Senate plays such a critical role in shaping the nation’s judiciary, Marco Rubio’s election is vitally important to help ensure that only strict constructionist judges are confirmed to the federal bench.”
