CatholicVote.org Candidate Fund Backs Canseco
Voters in TX-23 should return Quico Canseco to Congress
CHICAGO — Brian Burch, President of the CatholicVote.org Candidate Fund, issued the following statement as early voting begins today in the Texas primary:
“We are proud to announce our endorsement of Quico Canseco in the Texas primary. Canseco has been a successful businessman and philanthropist in Texas for over three decades. Canseco is also solidly pro-life and a strong supporter of religious liberty.
“Americans are discovering the empty promises of Obamacare every day. Unfortunately, this District is represented by Pete Gallego, who voted against repealing this nightmare law. As a result, American families are reeling from higher premiums and lower quality care – along with the most unprecedented assault on religious liberty. No wonder just 35% of Americans still support Obamacare, according to a CNN poll.
“It is vitally important that voters in this District elect Quico Canseco. Mr. Canseco understands how government regulations often defy common sense and are hurting American families. He is the candidate we believe is best equipped to truly help the unemployed and those whose wages have stagnated.
“Not only is this District a battleground seat, but it is 55% Hispanic as well. Hispanics in the United States are pro-life and want a chance to live the American dream. We think Quico Canseco is best suited to persuade voters in this District that a brighter future begins with more entrepreneurship and local control — not an activist federal government.”
“While there are several candidates vying for the chance to unseat Gallego, we think Quico Canseco is the best candidate and we encourage Catholics and all Texans to support him in the March 4 primary.”
The CatholicVote.org Candidate Fund is the political arm of CatholicVote.org, the largest Catholic grassroots organization in the country with 600,000 members, including 26,000 members in Texas.
