Conservative leader James Dobson and Concerned Women for America PAC endorsed Curtis Bostic in the April 2 Republican runoff.
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.
Dr. 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 pre-eminent importance at this crucial hour in our nation's history. He further supports States' rights under the 10th Amendment, religious liberty, and parental rights in directing their children's education. Curtis favors continued strong U. S. support for Israel, and defends the rights granted our citizenry under the Second Amendment."
Bostic was also endorsed by unsuccessful 2012 GOP presidential contender Rick Santorum this week.
