Washington, DC–Congressman Jim Banks, IN-3, Chairman of the Guardian Fund, is pleased to announce the PAC’s endorsement of 20 Candidates who are conservative veterans and/or minorities running for federal office in November.  This is the largest class of women, minorities and veterans the PAC has ever supported.

As Chairman of the Guardian Fund, I am excited about each candidate we have endorsed in 2020. Today, we endorsed 20 candidates for office and donated $125,000 bringing our total endorsements to 55 for this election cycle.  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. It is time for Congress to get back to work for the American people and the Guardian Fund will work tirelessly to make that possible,” 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 on the 21st century battlefield and to represent this country on the world stage.

Also, the diversity of the American people gives this country its unwavering strength and makes the United States exceptional. With the demographics of the U.S. population in continual flux, it’s more critical than ever for there to be an accurate representation of the American people in government. For far too long, Republicans have been bound by a grossly inaccurate description of their party and battled against definitions of conservatism ascribed by outside groups. The Guardian Fund wants to help elect more conservative minorities to Congress, so that Republicans from all walks of life are given a voice on Capitol Hill.

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 160 veteran and minority candidates nationwide since its inception.
