"Huck PAC and I are proud to endorse Nick Popaditch for U.S. Congress. I hope you’ll join me in sending this great man to Congress, where he can continue fighting for what is right."
Chula Vista, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2010
Nick Popaditch, a candidate for the United States Congress in the 51st district of California, is announcing that he has earned the endorsement of former Presidential candidate and FOX News host, Mike Huckabee. Following the 2008 elections, Governor Huckabee founded his political action committee, Huck PAC on the “principles that make America great: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” The Huck PAC mission is to seek out and endorse principled conservative candidates nationwide. As part of their mission, “Huck PAC is committed to helping Republicans regain control of the House and Senate, regain a majority of governorships and support conservative principles around the country.”
The following is a portion of the statement issued by Huck PAC and Gov. Mike Huckabee:
"As a decorated United States Marine, Nick Popaditch has clearly shown his loyalty and love of country. Nick was a career Marine who first served his nation in combat as a Sergeant during Operation Desert Shield and Storm – after an Honorable Discharge – he decided to re-enlist and returned to the front lines in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Nick’s willingness to serve is testament to his character and heart.
Now, Nick is once again going to serve and protect our liberties...this time from liberals in Washington. Californians deserve a leader like Nick who’ll fight for limited government, champion a strong national defense and work to secure borders."
When informed of the endorsement by Governor Huckabee and Huck PAC, Nick Popaditch responded with the following statement:
"I am honored to have earned the endorsement of Governor Mike Huckabee and Huck PAC. I admire the Governor's consistent display of moral courage and his ability to inspire others to follow his principled leadership. I will strive to uphold our mutual belief in smaller government, individual liberties, secure borders, protection of the unborn and traditional marriage."
About Nick Popaditch: Nick “Gunny Pop” Popaditch is a retired U.S. Marine campaigning for Congress in the 51st district in California running against incumbent Bob Filner (D). Popaditch was medically retired from the Marines in 2005 at the rank of Gunnery Sergeant from wounds sustained in combat in the battle of Fallujah. Popaditch was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry for his actions on April 6 and 7, 2004, while commanding a tank in Fallujah, Iraq and was also awarded the Purple Heart.
Understanding and believing in duty to country and his community, Nick is redeploying once again to serve and protect the liberties that make this nation truly exceptional. Only this time, the battle will be carried to the halls of Congress where our Freedom, so bravely won, and repeatedly secured by our troops for over two centuries, must be preserved, maintained, and protected, for the sake of our children and the generations to come.
