(Above: Audio of Mark Levin’s endorsement of Quin Hillyer — apologies for the low quality)
Quin Hillyer added another conservative heavyweight to his long list of endorsements yesterday when nationally syndicated talk radio host Mark Levin encouraged his listeners to support Hillyer in Alabama’s First Congressional District race.
“Quin Hillyer would be a tremendous member of congress,” Levin said. “He’s smart. He’s a constitutionalist. He’s a decent human being. I cannot support him strongly enough. So if you live in that area, turnout is everything in these special elections… I hope you will give serious consideration to my buddy Quin Hillyer. He’s absolutely terrific.”
Levin said he’s known Hillyer for 20 years and considers him a friend.
The Hillyer campaign also released a new ad this week with another well known conservative, Fox News commentator and editor of The Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes, delivering the narration.
“For more than 30 years, Quin has been in the fight for conservative public policy, which is why so many trusted conservatives are lending support to Quin’s campaign,” campaign spokesman T.J. Maloney said in a statement. “The Hillyer campaign has seen a sharp increase of support in just the last few weeks and this ad will carry us over the top.”
The ad can be seen below, followed by a transcript.
Narrated by Fred Barnes:
Hi. I’m Fred Barnes. I watch Alabama closely. My son went to school there and my daughter married an Alabama boy.
More and more top conservative reformers are joining me in supporting Mobile’s Quin Hillyer for Congress. He is a man with integrity and strong conservative principles. He also brings real know how and experience, and has a proven record of reforming Washington. Quin knows how to cut the budget. He was on the committee that actually balanced it in the 90’s. Quin exactly knows how to topple Obamacare. He’s already identified its Achilles’ heel. He can defend us against Obama’s abuses, the very ones Quin predicted five years ago. Not just talk – real insight and action.
We all trust our friend, Quin Hillyer, because for three full decades Quin has earned that trust.
