Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins is hosting a “Stand for the Family” political rally Saturday in Pride.
Featured speakers include Perkins, U.S. Senate candidate retired U.S. Air Force Col. Rob Maness, 6th Congressional District candidate Lenar Whitney and 5th Congressional District candidate Zach Dasher — all Republicans — as well as FRC Action executive director Josh Duggar.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of the TLC reality TV series “19 Kids and Counting” will also make an appearance.
“On Saturday, we will rally voters to support these candidates who have strong family values, clear purpose, and a tenacity to stand against the failed liberal policies of the administration,” said Perkins in a news release announcing the event. “No longer are lukewarm candidates acceptable.”
FRC Action has endorsed Maness who is challenging veteran Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu.
Whitney is a state representative and among those running for the seat vacated by U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is running for Senate. Dasher is in a field of candidates challenging U.S. Rep. Vance McAllister.
The event will be held from noon until 2 p.m. at 17184 Liberty Road in Pride. Jambalaya will be served.
The rally is part of FRC Action’s seven state Faith, Family, Freedom Tour.
