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.
