Republican Chris Wright landed the endorsement of the Wisconsin Family Action PAC, according to Wright's campaign.
The announcement was made by e-mail to Wright from Julie Appling, chair of Wisconsin Family Action PAC. Appling said in an email that Wright aligned well with the PAC's positions.
"Virtually everything that happens in state government in some way affects Wisconsin’s best natural resource: her traditional families," Appling wrote to Wright. "We look forward to working with you in the legislature in numerous ways to strengthen and preserve this critical resource, for the good of the entire state.”
Wright said he was "honored" to receive the endorsement.
Wisconsin Family Action focuses on issues that impact Wisconsin’s traditional families, according to the organization's website. It considers marriage, life and liberty the "bedrock" of Wisconsin. WFA has been active in campaigning against same-sex marriages in the state.
Wright, a Sturtevant Village Board member, is running against Rep. Cory Mason to represent the 62nd Assembly District. The election is Nov. 2.
