National Christian Conservative Leader Endorses Coleman
February 12, 2018
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
TULSA, OKLAHOMA: Today, Jim Backlin, the Vice-President for Legislative Affairs at Christian Coalition of America, endorsed in his personal capacity Andy Coleman for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District.
“Congress is in desperate need of more Christian conservatives who are willing to stand in the gap and fight for biblical principles. I’ve seen Andy’s work firsthand – protecting the persecuted church and defending our religious freedoms. He will go to Washington and succeed at changing it because of his tenacity and determination to succeed.
Christian conservatives could ask for no better friend on Capitol Hill than Andy Coleman,” stated Jim Backlin.
“I appreciate Jim’s vote of confidence and support of my campaign. I look forward to working with him and others on Capitol Hill to defend our religious freedoms and advance our shared conservative values. Our district deserves a representative who will stand in the gap for the innocent unborn and the conservative values that make our country a beacon of freedom in the world,” expressed Coleman.
Captain Andy Coleman is seeking the Republican nomination for the open congressional seat in Oklahoma’s First District. He is an Air Force Academy graduate and former intelligence officer who served in the Middle East. He is the only candidate in the race with military and national security experience – critical skill sets in short supply in the House. For six years, Coleman led efforts to aid persecuted Christians in 17 hostile and restricted countries, as the Middle East Regional Director for the Voice of the Martyrs, a Christian ministry based in Bartlesville.
