In Which I Am Endorsed by the Eagle Forum

Eagle Forum of Illinois Endorses Paul Mitchell for State House Seat

January 13, 2009


Gurnee-IL: Eagle Forum of Illinois yesterday announced its endorsement of businessman Paul Mitchell in his race for nomination to the Illinois House in the 62nd District. “I am thrilled to receive Eagle Forum’s endorsement,” said Mitchell this morning. “The Eagle Forum is not only a powerful force in Illinois, but across our nation in the effort to foster conservative values in government,” Mitchell said. “I’m honored to receive this endorsement and proud to stand with the Forum in its efforts to strengthen families, fight for life, and protect our freedoms.”

In addition to Eagle Forum, Mitchell’s endorsements include Tax Accountability (the political arm of the National Taxpayers Union of Illinois), Illinois Conservatives, the Illinois Federation for Right to Life PAC, the Illinois Center Right Coalition, and numerous others.

Eagle Forum, a national organization of citizen-volunteers, participates in the public policymaking process. The Illinois division is today headed by former Illinois State Rep. Penny Pullen. Eagle Forum was originally founded and led by the conservative icon and legend, Phyllis Schlafly, now of St. Louis, previously of Alton, Illinois.

“Various Eagle Forum leaders in our state have examined the credentials and positions of the candidates seeking this nomination,” said Miss Pullen. “This was an easy choice. Paul Mitchell is challenging one of those incumbents who need to leave office. Her embrace of the radical Freedom of Choice Act just a year ago to invalidate every restriction Illinois has enacted to curb abortion casts doubt on her judgment and the principles she uses to make decisions about legislation affecting our families. Paul Mitchell is an outstanding candidate who can be counted on by families in the 62nd District to champion their interests. We salute his outspoken advocacy of the right to life and for protecting parental rights.

“Voters can trust Paul Mitchell, and we wish him well in the Feb. 2 GOP primary.”
