“The Values Action Team has a long history in the U.S. Senate and strong ties to our nation’s conservative grassroots leaders, and I am honored to chair this organization along with my colleagues, Sen. Rubio and Ayotte,” said Blunt. “Traditional values are fundamental to America’s very foundation, and I look forward to working together with my Senate colleagues and pro-family groups as we address the critical issues facing Missouri and the nation.”
“Traditional values are the foundation of our society, and I am honored to join my colleagues in this effort to ensure that pro-family causes and ideas always find a receptive ear in the Senate,” said Rubio. “Protecting the most vulnerable in our society and upholding our traditional values are important principles that should define America. I will continue supporting policies that put families first, protect the unborn, and support a judiciary comprised of well-qualified men and women who will interpret the laws of our land instead of establishing new policy from the bench.”
“As the mother of two children, I care deeply about keeping alive the American dream for future generations. Protecting core family values while working to put America on a path to fiscal sustainability is central to that effort, and I look forward to working with Sen. Blunt and Rubio to advance this important discussion,” said Ayotte.
The group will continue to serve as a liaison to social conservative organizations dedicated to advancing pro-family causes and policies, and it will work to ensure that elected officials and grassroots organizational leaders who share common goals can communicate on the important issues that are facing America.
