Pastor Josh Davenport of Unionville, Iowa, has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).
In a statement released Monday, one week before the important Feb. 1 Iowa caucus, Davenport said:
As we approach the 2016 Iowa Caucuses, I am publicly and formally endorsing Senator Rand Paul as my choice to be the Republican nominee for this year’s Presidential election. I am a native Iowan and even though I am a pastor here in Iowa and have also been active within the Republican Party of Iowa from various leadership positions. I am not giving an endorsement on behalf of any church, organization, or Party committee. I am endorsing Rand Paul because I personally believe he is the best person for the job.
I ask you to please join me in supporting Rand Paul for President in the days and months ahead. We must reject this rock-star, popularity culture mindset and vote for someone based upon their principles. The Bible says that “righteousness exaltheth a nation” and I can’t think of anything more nationally righteous than for us to elect a president who will fight to protect our freedom of religion and will hold to a simple Biblical view of limited government.In a day where it seems like anyone will say anything to get anywhere, it is encouraging to see a candidate who has a proven track record of not wavering, who understands the principles that must be followed, and who has a plan to reign in the power of the government so that “We the People” can make America great again.
