During the Presidential Election of 2016, Evangelical Christians, and Christians of other denominations, considered this election as the most crucial for the last 60 years, and our main concern became the fate of the Supreme Court under a liberal and progressive president.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump had promised to appoint a conservative judge to the US Supreme Court to replace the late Supreme Court Judge, Antonin Scalia. This was a strong reason to support Donald Trump and 80% of Evangelical Christians united to elect him as president.
On Wednesday, February 1, President Trump fulfilled his promise by nominating Federal Judge Neil Gorsuch to the US Supreme Court. Neil Gorsuch has an impressed background and experience as US Judge in Colorado. During his introduction at the White House, Neil Gorsuch promised to interpret the constitution and not to legislate from the bench. This was a refreshing message for many of us respecting the US Constitution.
NAFAPAC and Evangelical Christians are encouraged by President Trump’s selection; nonetheless, now the real battle begins in the US Senate where all democrats are determined to derail his appointment to the highest court of our nation.
After 8 years persevering and reaching out to Evangelical Christians, the members, supporters and friends of NAFAPAC are feeling a great sense of accomplishment; but, our mission is not over yet and we must continue our efforts to transform this nation and bring back the vision of our Founding Fathers.
On November 6, 2018, 33 of the 100 seats in the US Senate will be contested and we must concentrate in electing more Christian conservatives to the US Senate and US House of Representatives. We also must focus our efforts on replacing Democratic Senator Bill Nelson with a Christian conservative. Bill Nelson was reelected in 2012 and he is expected to run for another term in 2018. We must continue solidifying our 2016 victories to expand the support of the voters to replace Senator Bill Nelson and elect more conservative candidates in 2018.
There are several potential conservative candidates being considered for the US Senate race in 2018 as Governor Rick Scott, Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, Chief Financial Officer of Florida Jeff Atwater and others.
Without a doubt, the Democrats suffered a stunning and unexpected defeat in 2016 and Democrats running for the US Senate and US House of Representative in 2018 are getting nervous. The support of democrat US Senators for the Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch at the hearings and at the US Senate confirmation will be a test for these Senators and it may influence the Evangelical voters in their states. Evangelical Christians in Florida, and nationwide, must unite to become a decisive force electing more conservative US Senators to maintain control of the US Senate and future vacancies in the US Supreme Court.
For years we have prayed for this nation and our voices have been heard. Now, we pray that the Lord continues blessing our country for years to come and pray for our elected president Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to govern with wisdom and purpose protecting the values that made the United States of America a great nation.
As always, NAFAPAC will be striving for more awareness by the voters on political and social issues and as a source of information for those seeking political guidance.
