Pat Boone endorses Angle, PAC switches support from Lowden to Angle



angle1-3954143-5138258Today, Pat Boone officially endorsed Sharron Angle’s GOP bid to replace Harry Reid in the United States Senate. Boone, a famous singer and actor, is also well known as a political writer and commentator willing to tackle the tough conservative issues that matter to America.

“I know a real conservative when I meet one” said Boone when asked to talk about his endorsement for the former four-term Republican lawmaker. “I was there helping Ronald Reagan when he ran for Governor in California, and I followed him all the way to the White House. Today, I’m getting behind another Reagan conservative, this time from Nevada. Her name is Sharron Angle, and she is the proven consistent conservative in this race who can retire Harry Reid and send him back to Searchlight to pound sand.”

Boone said that Nevadans enjoy a prime opportunity during the June 8 Nevada primary to elect a bona fide conservative capable of defeating Reid, someone with the moral fiber and determination to clean up the messes in Washington, D.C.

“Nevada cannot afford to elect a Republican who is watered down or unproven,” Boone emphasized. “Nevada has the opportunity to elect a real Republican who is battle tested, someone we know who is capable and willing to stand up for what’s right for our country. Sharron Angle is that person; she has a rock-solid record that conservatives can trust. That is why I am proud to support Sharron Angle for United States Senate, and I ask you to stand with me and support Sharron Angle as well.”

Angle spokesperson Jerry Stacy said the campaign was delighted to have Pat Boone join with others from a broad base of more than 20 state and nation-wide conservative organizations and individuals who have chosen Angle over all other Republicans in the race, including Minutemen PAC, Gun Owners of America, Joe the Plumber, Nevada Concerned Citizens, Tea Party Express, Phyllis Schlafly, Nevada Republican Assembly, Citizens United, Veterans in Politics, radio host Mark Levin and several more.

In another announcement, Stacy also reported that Change the Congress in 2010, a federal PAC, informed the Angle campaign in writing that it “sent the Lowden campaign a withdrawal of endorsement” and were now “endorsing Sharron Angle in the Nevada Republican primary for the United States Senate.”
