WASHINGTON DC–Guardian Fund Founder Lt. Colonel (ret.) Allen West and current Chairman Congressman Barry Loudermilk, GA-11 are honored to announce the new Chairman of the PAC for the 2020 election cycle, Congressman Jim Banks, IN-3.
Congressman Banks, a Guardian Fund endorsed candidate in the 2016 and 2018 election cycles, has stood out as someone with the qualities and characteristics that would uphold the Guardian Fund’s mission into the 2020 election cycle and build upon its success in helping to elect great leaders. “Congressman Banks, a veteran, is the type of leader who can be entrusted with the future of our nation and inspire other servicemen and women to exercise their voices and talents on Capitol Hill,” said former Congressman Allen West.
New Guardian Fund Chairman Congressman Jim Banks remarked, “It is an honor to be named Chairman of the Guardian Fund and build on the important work of Col. West and Congressman Loudermilk to recruit and elect more veterans to Congress.”
Since its establishment in 2012, the Guardian Fund has assisted in the election of 77 candidates to office on the federal level. With its unique mission of supporting conservative veterans and minorities, the Guardian Fund acted as a true trailblazer for the Republican Party and has raised nearly $8 million dollars since inception.
Allen West served as Chairman of the Guardian Fund during the 2012 and 2014 election cycles followed by Congressman Barry Loudermilk who served during the 2016 and 2018 cycles.
