The Rev. Donald Wildmon on Wednesday endorsed Senator Lee Yancey to be Mississippi's next State Treasurer. The following is a statement released to the media:
Wildmon, Founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Mississippi based American Family Association (AFA) and American Family Radio (AFR), is one of America's leading pro-family voices. With more than 2 million on-line supporters, AFA is one of the country's most influential conservative organizations.
"With all that is going on today with the economy, debt and taxes, I cannot think of anyone I would trust more than Lee Yancey to be our State Treasurer," said Wildmon. "Lee is conservative and responsible in his public service. That is exactly what we need in this position."
"I am honored to have the support of Rev. Wildmon," said Yancey. "For three decades he has been a conservative leader admired by people across America. I am proud that he is a Mississippian and proud that he has decided to support me in this important election.
Last year Wildmon received a lifetime achievement award for his commitment to traditional values by the Value Voters Summit.
Senator Lee Yancey represents parts of Rankin and Madison counties in the Senate. Yancey is an investment advisor representative with Woodridge Capital Portfolio Management.
