GOPAC, one of the premier organizations in the national conservative movement, officially announced this morning that they are endorsing State Rep. Chad Fincher in the race to succeed Rep. Jo Bonner as Alabama’s First District representative in the United States Congress.
Fincher’s endorsement comes as part of a new GOPAC program aimed at transitioning proven state and local leaders to higher office. GOPAC’s new program, “Called Up: A New Generation of Proven Leaders,” will provide support in the form of advertising as independent expenditures for GOPAC affiliated legislators running for federal office.
“Much like in Major League Baseball, we have diligently worked to foster the talents of young leaders and build a deep bench of battle-tested candidates. These rising conservative stars have proven themselves on the state and local levels, and it is now time to call them up to higher office,” said GOPAC Chairman Frank Donatelli. “Starting with the Alabama special election and continuing into the 2014 cycle, ‘Called Up’ will allow us to re-engage on the federal level, foster our talented state legislators into higher office, and attain the culmination of GOPAC’s vision.”
