Lindy Blanchard receives American Conservative Union endorsement

Lindy Blanchard, a candidate in Alabama’s governor’s race, on Wednesday received the endorsement of the American Conservative Union.

“Lindy Blanchard is running for Gov of AL and CPAC is proud to endorse her,” said ACU chair Matt Schlapp in a statement. “Blanchard stands for lower taxes, less Gov’t and more transparency. She built a family business, generously helps children around the world and served w honor as an Ambassador for President Donald Trump.”

Blanchard said in a statement that it’s humbling to receive the endorsement.

“It is a tremendous honor, and I am grateful to be recognized by the ACU in this way,” Blanchard said. “I am proud of where I stand on the issues. I support our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, every one of them.”

“I believe in personal freedom and the personal responsibility that comes with it. I believe that families are the bedrock our society is built on, and that children are precious from the moment of conception onward,” Blanchard continued. “I believe that faith in God is what gives us the strength to get through every single day.”

Blanchard, a first-time candidate, faces incumbent Gov. Kay Ivey and six others in the Republican primary on May 24th. Blanchard was appointed by former President Donald Trump as U.S. ambassador to Slovenia.
