Bauer Launches Strategic Campaign To Elect Todd Akin

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former presidential candidate Gary Bauer announced Monday that his Campaign for Working Families (CWF) would begin a six-figure independent expenditure to elect Todd Akin to the United States Senate. "Todd Akin is a Ronald Reagan conservative who believes in a strong national defense, strong families and pro-growth economic policies," said Bauer.

Recently, the Guardian called Bauer "one of the leading campaigners in the U.S. on pro-life and pro-traditional family issues." Well-known for creating effective campaigns in key states, he has run ads this cycle exposing Obama's radicalism on marriage and highlighting the shockingly negative reaction of Democratic National Committee delegates to the inclusion of God in their party platform.

Bauer noted, "The voters of Missouri's Second Congressional District have supported Todd Akin time and again. Republican voters supported Todd Akin in the GOP Senate primary. The Republican Party of Missouri is supporting Todd Akin in this Senate race, as is Senator Roy Blunt. If Senator Mitch McConnell and his colleagues want to be in the majority next year, I strongly urge the National Republican Senatorial Committee to support Todd Akin too."

"Representative Akin has an exceptional record that should not be nullified by one statement for which he has sincerely apologized. He is the epitome of Missouri's common sense conservative values and represents real change from the failed Obama/McCaskill policies.

Bauer continued, "Seventy-one percent of Missouri voters rejected Obamacare's individual mandate. Claire McCaskill voted for it. Seventy-one percent of Missouri voters supported a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage. Claire McCaskill opposed it."

"The voters of Missouri deserve a senator who will fight for their values, not against them. Todd Akin will be that senator," Bauer said.
