Wenstrup Receives “True Blue” Award for Support of Faith, Family, and Freedom in America
Washington, February 23, 2017
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-02) was honored with the “True Blue” Award from the Family Research Council (FRC) for his strong commitment to family values issues and his leadership in defending the right to life during the 114th Congress.
“The ideals of faith, family, and freedom have served as pillars for American society throughout our nation’s history,” said Congressman Wenstrup. “They have anchored us during times of immense challenge, strengthened us after national tragedies, and united us in our diversity. Our continued commitment to these three ideals will define the direction of our future, and I’m grateful for organizations like the Family Research Council for spearheading efforts to preserve and promote these principles. I am proud to continue to partner with them in the fight to protect the life and liberty of every American.”
"We thank Representative Wenstrup for consistently voting to uphold faith, family and freedom,” said Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins. “Rep. Wenstrup voted to repeal key parts of Obamacare, protect unborn children and their mothers, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, allow students to attend the school of their choice, and protect pro-life organizations and employers from being forced to hire individuals who disagree with pro-life principles. We can be encouraged by elected officials who are willing to be criticized as they stand for family values. Members like Rep. Wenstrup deserve praise for their unwavering commitment to stand for life, family, marriage, and religious liberty.”
The “True Blue” award is given by FRC Action, the legislative arm of the non-profit Family Research Council, and Focus on the Family Action. This award is presented to Members of Congress who have consistently supported policies that are pro-family, pro-marriage, and protect the sanctity of human life.
