Conservative leader James Dobson and the Concerned Women for America PAC endorsed Curtis Bostic in Tuesday's Republican runoff in the 1st Congressional District.

In a statement, the PAC said: "On our core issues -- life, marriage, religious liberty and education -- Curtis Bostic not only shares our values, but they are intrinsic to the way he lives. The decision that he and his wife, Jenny, made to embrace their faith, disregard medical advice, and have their fifth child clearly shows that Curtis honors his commitments and stands in strong contrast to Mark Sanford's abandonment of his core principles."

Concerned Women for America PAC is a public-policy women's organization established in 2002 with more than 500,000 grassroots members nationwide.

James Dobson, a radio broadcaster, author and consultant to three former U.S. presidents, said in a statement: "Speaking as a private individual, it is with confidence and enthusiasm that I endorse the nomination of Curtis Bostic for the United States Congress. Curtis is steadfast in supporting traditional marriage and defending the unborn child, matters of preeminent importance at this crucial hour in our nation's history."
