Mrs. Davis trumpeted the announcement in a newsletter sent today, as well as in the following news release:
In what could be a game changer in November, former State Representative Cynthia Davis became the only candidate to be endorsed as the Pro-Life candidate for Missouri Lt Governor by Missouri Right to Life. No Republican or Democratic candidate running for Lt. Governor received the endorsement of this respected and influential group.
In response, Davis said "We are changing the political landscape. This is the first time Missouri Right to Life has ever endorsed anyone on the Constitution Party ticket. This endorsement is good news for the Pro-Life voters because they deserve a true champion of our values---not just lip service at election time."
Cynthia Davis is running a true grass roots campaign on the platform of "Principles, not Politics" and holding the others accountable. She has been speaking at rallies, 9/12 groups, property rights councils, Tea Parties, patriot groups and women's organizations throughout the state.
Never before have so many voters been disappointed with the options offered by the Republican and Democrat parties. “Republicans claim to be Pro-Life, but have failed to offer their voters any real choices on the ballot for those who want a Pro-Life option. The Democrat Party doesn't even pretend to care about life issues, though many individual Democratic voters are Pro-Life and welcome the option of voting for a candidate who respects life. "With the majority of Missourians wanting a champion for Pro-Life issues, I am happy to have this endorsement and the support of thousands of informed Pro-Life voters who want to elect people of principle to office," said Cynthia Davis.
Missouri Right to Life only gives their endorsement to candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to Pro-Life issues including opposition to abortion, human cloning, assisted suicide and euthanasia. While Cynthia Davis was in the Missouri House of Representatives, especially while serving as the Chairman of the Children and Families Committee, she proved her unwavering commitment to life. Missouri Right to Life is the oldest and most credible Pro-Life organization which estimates there are over a quarter of a million informed Pro-Life voters in our state.
The letter from Missouri Right to Life
I don't anticipate this to be any more a "game changer" than Missouri Right to Life's much-heralded endorsement of Roy Cagle in the Republican primary for State Senate a few years back. A giant press conference was held for that endorsement, with Cagle also receiving the endorsements of state representatives Mark Elliott, Gary Burton, and Chuck Surface in his race against incumbent Dr. Marvin Singleton. Singleton went on to win the primary by a wide margin.
