Eagle Forum and Phyllis Schlafly Endorse Rob Maness
Madisonville, LA - Col. Rob Maness (USAF, ret.), the conservative candidate running against Mary Landrieu for the United States Senate, is honored to accept the endorsement of Eagle Forum, the nation's leading organization in the fight to preserve traditional values.
"Phyllis Schlafly's long-standing, proven commitment to limited government, national sovereignty, and traditional American values is truly remarkable," Maness said. "Phyllis Schlafly and Eagle Forum understand that there has been a dangerous increase in the federal government's power and a retreat from the traditional values that created a country of strong individuals, families, churches, and communities.
"As Louisiana's senator, I will protect life, marriage, families, and local control of education," Maness pledged. "Too often government fosters broken families through ill-conceived economic policies. We need to return to the values that made America the greatest country in the world: liberty, individual responsibility, and hard work."

Col. Rob Maness is the conservative candidate for United States Senate from Louisiana in 2014. Col. Maness holds master's degrees from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, the Naval War College, and the Air Command and Staff College.
Rob and Candy Maness have five children, two of whom are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Col. Maness is a recipient of the Bronze Star Medal and Air Medal, and served in numerous combat operations, including Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. For more about Col.

Washington, D.C. - Eagle Forum PAC, a conservative public policy organization founded by pro-family leader Phyllis Schlafly, is proud to endorse Colonel Rob Maness in the race to represent Louisiana in the United States Senate.
"Colonel Maness is exactly the kind of leader we need in Washington," said Schlafly. "He understands the high cost of freedom and is dedicated to defending strong pro-family values, individual liberty, and our national security."
"We need people like Rob, who aren't coming to Washington for personal ambition, but are coming to represent and fight for the values and principles that have made America great," noted Schlafly.
"He will respect and demand enforcement of the rule of law, opposes the federal one-size-fits-all education initiative known as Common Core, and is determined to stop the slide toward socialism while protecting American families."
Eagle Forum PAC supports candidates who are committed to a conservative philosophy of limited government, national sovereignty and traditional values.
