Fairbanks, Alaska. September 28, 2016 — Family Research Council Executive Vice President and former Delta Force Commander Lieutenant General (Ret.) William G. “Jerry” Boykin announced his endorsement of Joe Miller for U.S. Senate on Wednesday, describing the Alaskan as a “rock solid” conservative with whom he is “100 percent” in alignment.
“I am supporting Joe Miller. I believe in Joe,” Boykin stated, adding he is “a strong conservative on issues of national security, smaller government and fiscal constraint, and social issues like life and family. On all the core issues that conservatives hold dear, Joe is rock solid.”
“A West Point graduate, Joe has served his nation in the uniform of a United States Army officer, making him one of a dwindling number of leaders in America to have done so,” the retired three-star general said. “As a dedicated father and devoted husband, Joe embraces the family values that will help keep America strong.”
Miller responded to the backing of the renowned military and conservative leader saying, “I am deeply honored and humbled to receive the endorsement of a man whom I respect so deeply and who has served our country with such distinction.”
He added, “I share the general’s assessment that our nation is at a critical juncture, and new leadership is desperately needed in Washington, grounded in America’s founding constitutional principles, in order to restore the security, prosperity and liberty that have been the birthright of all Americans.”
Joe Miller is a limited government Constitutionalist who believes government exists to protect our liberties, not to take them away. He supports free people, free markets, federalism, the Constitutional right to life, the 2nd Amendment, religious liberty, American sovereignty, and a strong national defense.
