Washington, DC –The National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC) announces their endorsements of candidates for the November 7, 2006 election:

Candidates for U.S. Senate

George Allen (R) – Virginia http://www.georgeallen.com/
Michael Steele (R) – Maryland http://www.steeleformaryland.com/
Harold Ford (D) – Tennessee www.fordfortennessee.com

Rick Santorum (R) – Pennsylvania www.ricksantorum.com
Jim Talent (R) – Missouri www.talentforsenate.com
Mike DeWine (R) – Ohio www.mikedewine.com

“As pastors and leaders in our communities, its vital that we continue to be informed and encourage members of our churches and communities to be well-informed about the issues that each candidate represents. Throughout the year, our leaders have been active in fighting for immigration and education reform and we have gotten to know leaders in Congress who fight for the Latino community and those who do not. We will vote for the candidates who will best represent the interests of our community,” said Rev. Miguel Rivera, “we urge all Latino voters to join us in supporting conservative candidates who will best represent the Latino Christian Church and its members in the U.S. Senate.”

Due to the lack of action by members of Congress in the House of Representatives with regard to Comprehensive Immigration Reform, our Leaders will not vote for members of the House who stalled the work brought forth by the members of the U.S. Senate. We seek a change in the House of Representatives this election.
