National Right to Life Endorses Russ Fulcher


Meridian, ID – National Right to Life, one of the country’s leading pro-life organizations, has endorsed Russ Fulcher for Congress in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. Their full statement is below:

National Right to Life is pleased to endorse Russ Fulcher for election to the U.S. House of Representatives, to represent the 1st congressional district of Idaho.

Russ Fulcher is a strong advocate for life. Russ supports pro-life legislation, including the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect unborn children by prohibiting abortion at 20 weeks, a point by which the unborn child is capable of experiencing great pain when being killed by dismemberment or other late abortion methods.

Russ Fulcher also opposes the use of federal funds for abortion.

This endorsement reflects Russ Fulcher’s commitment to strengthening a culture of life throughout the nation and in the U.S. Congress. We look forward to working with him to protect the most vulnerable members of the human family – unborn children and medically dependent or disabled persons, whose lives are threatened by abortion or euthanasia.

All voters who are concerned with the right to life and with the protection of the most vulnerable members of the human family should vote to send Russ Fulcher to Congress, so that he can work to advance vital pro-life public policies.

Statement on President Trump’s Pardon of The Hammonds


I appreciate President Trump’s pardon of Dwight and Steven Hammond. Despite federal Judge Michael Hogan arguing that a five year minimum sentence would be excessive, the previous administration’s Department of Justice used an anti-terrorism law to prosecute the ranchers, ultimately winning an appeal which sent the Hammonds to jail for the full five year sentence. This was unjust — and to many in rural western communities — further proof of the federal government’s hostility to ranchers, farmers, and landowners. Thank you President Trump for rectifying this injustice.

Help us fight the desperate attacks


Friends,

We are just ONE WEEK away from Primary Election Day!

My opponents can’t match my record of standing up for Idaho families and against government overreach, so with just a few days remaining in the race, they have resorted to slinging mud in a desperate attempt to fool voters about my record.

We’re fighting back with the Fulcher Fact/Check Fund. Your contribution to the fund will help us fight back against the smears and distortions from our opponents.

Conservatives like Congressman Raul Labrador, Senator Ted Cruz, and Trump Deputy Campaign Manager David Bossie have already endorsed our campaign, but we need to make sure voters in our district don’t buy into the distortions about my record.

The finish line is in sight, and we’re excited at the growing momentum our campaign is seeing. Your support today will bring us closer to Election Day victory.

Sincerely,

Russ Fulcher

Russ Fulcher Receives New Endorsements From Conservative Pro-Family Groups


Meridian, ID – This week, two more national conservative groups with a history of defending conservative values nationwide endorsed Republican candidate for Congress Russ Fulcher.

The Family Research Council, a conservative organization famous for its defense of religious liberty and family values policies, and The Campaign for Working Families, a distinguished pro-family and pro-free enterprise organization, both released statements expressing their support for Russ Fulcher for Congress.

The Campaign For Working Families called Fulcher a “not a ‘politics as usual’ candidate. He is a leader,” while the Family Research Council expressed their confidence that Fulcher will be a “principled advocate for Constitutional limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values.”

Fulcher called the endorsements validation of his pro-family record, saying “The Family Research Council and the Campaign for Working Families are two of the leading pro-family organizations in the country. That they would support me in a crowded race confirms what our campaign has been saying all along: no other candidate can match my record of fighting for policies that promote pro-life and pro-family values.

David Bossie and Citizens United Endorse Russ Fulcher


Russ Fulcher, candidate for Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, is pleased to announce that the Citizens United Political Victory Fund has endorsed his candidacy.

Citizens United is dedicated to restoring government’s control back to the people. They are most well-known for their advocacy of freedom of speech as guaranteed by the First Amendment.

David Bossie, president of Citizens United and former Deputy Campaign Manager for President Trump’s campaign, released a statement today saying, “Along with Citizens United Political Victory Fund, I’m proud to endorse principled conservative Russ Fulcher for Congress in Idaho’s 1st CD. Russ is a strong supporter of President Trump’s agenda and I look forward to working with him!”

“Citizens United and I share the same goal to shrink the size of government and bring the control back to the people,” Fulcher said, “I am deeply honored to have their support.”

Right To Life of Idaho Commends Russ Fulcher On Strong Pro-Life Record


Right to Life of Idaho would like to commend Russ Fulcher for his strong pro-life record. During his nine years as State Senator in the Idaho State Legislature, Russ was uncompromising in his stand for the sanctity of human life as a supporter and frequent sponsor of pro-life legislation. Russ has been a tireless advocate for the unborn, disabled, and elderly as his record shows.

When I first began lobbying for Right to Life of Idaho over a decade ago, I discovered that there were many legislators who were pro-life in principle but only a small number willing to carry pro-life legislation and shoulder the potential controversy and political fallout. Russ was always a ball carrier—someone who would take the ball and become a target for the sake of the team. Right to Life of Idaho would like to express our sincere gratitude and respect for Russ Fulcher and his work as a voice for the voiceless.

To Life!

No More Budgets Like This


Folks, I’ve gotta tell you something.

Watching some members of my party vote for a budget that further imperils our nation’s economic security was incredibly disappointing.

My concern about our federal government’s addiction to spending is one of the main reasons I joined the race for Congress. As Republicans, we cannot continue to be complicit in increasing our nation’s debt.

As your Congressman, I won’t bow to leadership or special interest pressures and vote for a bill like this.

But more than just being against something, I will bring conservative solutions to Congress, just like I did in the state legislature.

As your state senator, I sponsored and passed the largest tax cut in Idaho history. As we approach Saturday’s fundraising deadline, it is more important than ever that our campaign lets voters know that I will protect our hard-earned money.

I will work with any member of Congress that shares my concern about our government’s spending problem. We will create a budget that supports our military and border security, but not risk our children’s future by spending taxpayer dollars for things like Chuck Shumer’s subway train or Planned Parenthood.

Thank you for standing with me. Our nation’s future, and that of our children, is at stake.

Sincerely,
