A pro-life conservative women's political action committee that promotes what it calls "biblical values" has endorsed Bowling Green eye doctor Rand Paul for U.S. Senate.

In a statement released Wednesday, Concerned Women for America called Paul a "strong man of faith and of conviction." Paul is seeking the GOP nomination for the seat held by fellow Republican Jim Bunning, who is retiring.

Beverly LaHaye, founder and chairman of the Concerned Women PAC, cited Paul's financial support as one reason her group is backing Paul.

Paul has been using Internet fundraisers that also helped finance his father's presidential race last year. Last week, he banked an additional $236,000 for his Senate campaign in one day, brining his total contributions to nearly $1.7 million heading into next year's primary.

    Why are his views on the Constitution extreme? He's a strict constitutionalist, and wants to follow the law of the land to a 'T'. How is this extreme?

    I've called upon this group to withdraw their endorsement because of Paul's support for his father's abortion legislation and his overall view of our Constitution. His views on the Constitution are extreme.

    Good for these women. Rand is an exceptional gentleman and Constitutionalist who would make a fine Senator.
