Feda Morton, Fluvanna County biology teacher and Republican activist was endorsed Friday by the FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected to Family Research Council Action.
Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council and Chairman of the FRC Action PAC in convinced that Morton “has proven that she is a true friend of the family” and is an “advocate in Virginia for our individual liberties and personal freedoms that are under assault by this Congress.”
He is confident that Morton “is the right person to take on Tom Perriello and win.”
FRC Action PAC is the political action committee connected to FRC Action, a 501(c)(4) membership organization. FRC Action is the legislative advocacy arm of the Family Research Council, a 501(c)(3) organization.
This endorsement follows several other pro-family endorsements Morton has received, including Phylis Schlafly, Mike Farris, and Jerry Falwell, Jr.
Morton is one of five candidates vying for the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Tom Perriello in the fall.
In addition to Morton, Perriello’s Republican challengers include: state Sen. Robert Hurt of Chatham; Ivy resident and private real estate investor Laurence Verga; Albemarle County Supervisor Kenneth C. Boyd and Michael McPadden, a commercial airline pilot from North Garden.
Sen. Hurt is the favored candidate but he faces discontent over his vote in 2004 for a $1.4 billion tax increase during then Governor Mark Warner’s rein.
