Conservative Pro-Life Women Back Bill Flores In Runoff

A runoff candidate in the Republican Primary race to oppose
the Democratic incumbent Chet Edwards picked up an
endorsement by a key anti-abortion political action
committee today.

Terming U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi's
procedural maneuvering to get the Obama Health Care reform
package "deemed approved" without a vote on the total bill
delivered to the lower chamber by the U.S. Senate a
"headlong rush to pass a disastrous government takeover of
American healthcare," Republican primary runoff candidate
Bill Flores picked up the endorsement of the Concerned Women
Political Action Committee on Wednesday.

A Houston oil executive who retired and moved to the College
Station area to take up a post as the President of the Texas
A&M Alumni Association, he opposes former Waco sports
anchorman Rob Curnock in the runoff election.

Affiliated with Concerned Women for America and boasting
more than 500,000 members nationwide, the Concerned Women
PAC was founded in 2002 by Mrs. Beverly LaHaye.

Concerned Women joined with Texas Right to Life to denounce
Mr. Edwards's voting record on the Stupak Amendment, which
would have prohibited coverage for abortions by insurance
companies; his vote to increase by $10 million Title X
funding for Planned Parenthood and an additional $103
million to international family planning agencies, "in
effect forcing the American taxpayer to indirectly promote
and fund abortions abroad; his espousal of hate crime
legislation, termed "a threat to religious liberty" that
"could hamper the ability of pastors to preach the Gospel in
their churches;" and a 100 percent rating with the National
Abortion Rights Action League.

Mrs. Penny Nance of the Concerned Women PAC said her
organization gave Mr. Flores the nod because "he is a social
conservative who is unapologetically pro-life and pro-family
and isn't afraid to expose Chet Edwards's' liberal voting

Mr. Flores vowed that if he is elected to the House of
Representatives seat, he will spend his time above and
beyond his duty of cast his vote on bills by raising
consciousness among his colleagues against liberal
