Furse Picks Up Pro-Life Endorsement
Republican state senatorial candidate Austen Furse has picked up the endorsement of a local right-to-life organization in his race to claim the seat formerly held by Kyle Janek.
The Texas Right to Life PAC said that it “diligently reviewed” all of the candidates before announcing its endorsement of Furse, according to Adam Black, political director for the organization.
“Texas Right to Life PAC is pleased and proud to endorse your candidacy,” Black told Furse in making the announcement. “(The PAC) does not take lightly the responsibility to you, the candidate, the voters or to the members of Texas Right to Life. Therefore, the PAC diligently reviewed each of the candidates before making a decision.”
Black added the organization looks forward to working with Furse.
“Texas Right to Life PAC welcomes the opportunity to work with you to support public policy that defends, protects and sustains pro-life initiatives,” Black said.
Furse said the views of the group reflected his own pro-life stance.
“I am pro-life and I am pleased to be recognized as the pro-life candidate in the race,” Furse said.
Furse also praised the group, saying it has been instrumental in educating and motivating pro-life voters.
The endorsement was the third picked up by Furse in the past week. The Houston Realty Breakfast Club and the C Club announced their endorsement of the candidate last week.
Furse, a West University Place resident and former presidential appointee in the George H.W. Bush administration, is one of three formally announced candidates for the seat. Other announced candidates are Houston attorney Grant Harpold and former felony court judge and Southside Place resident Joan Huffman.
