WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today FRC Action PAC is endorsing Brian Murphy for Governor of Maryland.

"In a year when many of us keep hearing that the fiscal issues trump the social issues, we believe we have found a candidate who is good on both issues.  Brian Murphy is that candidate. This primary is a clear choice between a fiscal, social conservative and a pro-abortion, big spending liberal," said Connie Mackey, President of FRC Action PAC.  "We are convinced Brian Murphy is the best choice."

"Bob Ehrlich, as governor, increased spending by over 30 percent.  He also signed legislation that forced taxpayers to pay $15 million for unethical research that destroys embryonic human beings.   It is time for new leadership in Maryland.

"Brian Murphy has the skills and understanding to lead Maryland through these difficult economic times.  As a businessman, he knows the necessity of fiscal responsibility, unlike the big government approach of Bob Ehrlich, Martin O'Malley and the establishment career politicians in Annapolis.  

"In a year where the out-of-control spending is placing unprecedented burdens on our families, Brian Murphy represents the fiscal principles and traditional values that will be necessary for the economic recovery of Maryland.  We are confident he will always place his constituents first, before the interests of government.

"FRC Action PAC believes that Brian Murphy will be a true advocate for faith, family, and freedom.  We are honored to endorse this pro-life, pro-family candidate."
