"Wendy Long will provide principled, conservative leadership for New York, and American, families."—Brian Brown, President NOM—
WASHINGTON, DC—The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today announced its endorsement of Wendy Long in the race to challenge incumbent US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
"Wendy Long is a brilliant attorney, accomplished leader and dedicated wife and mother who will provide principled, conservative leadership for New York and American families," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "She understands that New Yorkers hunger for committed leaders who will uphold American values like traditional marriage, fight to create jobs and force government to live within its means. We are proud to endorse her."
NOM is the nation's largest organization dedicated to preserving marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The group strongly opposed redefining marriage and has pledged to spend $2 million on issue advocacy, and in support of candidates, who will fight to give voters a say in determining the definition of marriage in New York."
"Kirsten Gillibrand has abandoned families on important issues like the definition of marriage," Brown said. "She has come to symbolize everything that's wrong with Washington—cultural arrogance and recklessly spending money we don't have, saddling families with a mountain of debt. In Wendy Long, we have a candidate who will fight hard for families in Washington."
