    WASHINGTON, May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, FRC Action endorsed
 Robert Schaffer for the U.S. Senate seat representing Colorado.
 
 
 
     "I have worked with him on several pieces of pro-family legislation and
 have consistently been impressed by his integrity, intelligence and
 assiduous approach to advancing and protecting the family, especially when
 it comes to protecting the unborn," said Connie Mackey, Senior
 Vice-President for FRC Action.
 
 
 
     Bob Schaffer served in Congress for three terms, from 1997 to 2002,
 during which he received a 100% rating from the National Right to Life. In
 2002, he was the recipient of our first True Blue Award.
 
 
 
     While in Congress, Bob Schaffer also co-sponsored the Child Custody
 Protection Act, making it a criminal offense to transport a minor across
 state lines to perform an abortion intended to evade parental notice law.
 He also co-sponsored the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which included
 evidence that challenged the scientific holdings in the Stenberg v. Carhart
 case from 2000. Finally, during his three terms, he averaged a 76% with the
 National Taxpayer's Union which during his time in office qualified as an A
 rating.
 
 
 
     "It was an honor to work with him in the past, and it is an honor to
 endorse him for the office he will hopefully hold in the future," Mackey
 concluded.
 
 
 
     FRC Action, a 501(c)(4) membership organization, is the legislative
