Washington, DC–Congressman Jim Banks, IN-3, Chairman of the Guardian Fund, is pleased to announce the PAC’s endorsement of Dr. Rich McCormick of Georgia’s 7th Congressional district.
Dr. Rich McCormick, GA-7 has over 20 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and Navy, Rich served in combat zones in Africa, the Persian Gulf, and Afghanistan. As a Marine, he flew helicopters and taught at Georgia Tech and Morehouse College as the Marine Officer Instructor. In the Navy, Rich earned the rank of Commander and served as the Department Head for the Emergency Medicine Department in Afghanistan.
“As Chairman of the Guardian Fund, I am excited about Dr. McCormick and his chance at victory in the GOP primary. While Democrats continue to focus on divisiveness, we are committed to supporting candidates who give us the best chance to win back the House and maintain a conservative majority in the Senate. I am looking forward to serving with Rich,” stated Banks.
The purpose of the Guardian Fund is to promote conservative minority and veteran leaders who we believe will successfully restore our great country back to the constitutional republic established by our founding fathers.
The United States deserves to be led by individuals who not only understand our military, but by those whom have sworn an oath to be a part it. Forty years ago, 72 percent of lawmakers in the US House and 78 percent of those in the US Senate honorably served in the armed forces. We need servicemen and women to safely lead us through the challenges of the 21st century battlefield and to represent this country on the world stage.
Guardian Fund is a political action committee established in 2012 by Lt Col Allen West. The current Chairman is Congressman Jim Banks, IN-3. The Guardian Fund has assisted in the elections of 114 veteran and minority candidates nationwide since its inception.
