National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition - 2014
On behalf of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition, I would like to take this opportunity to express, our appreciation for Congressman Doug Lamborn’s willingness to continue to serve our nation in the US House of Representatives and to support those who answered America’s call to duty. His leadership and patriotism are especially needed in the House of Representatives at this particular time in our history when our beloved country is at risk, not only from foreign terrorists, but also from domestic advocates of extreme social and economic ‘reform’ and the weaklings who fail to confront them. Accordingly, the Board of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition was polled and has unanimously approved the endorsement of his candidacy.
The Coalition consists of 70 veterans organizations and veterans advocacy groups which represent over 250,000 veterans and, along with their family members and supporters, a significant portion of America’s voting population. Please recognize that national security is the Coalition’s primary objective. As veterans, we served to protect our nation and, although we are concerned about veterans issues, we continue to be focused on “What can we do for our country?”
We are grateful for Congressman Lamborn’s support of legislation related to the proper care treatment and recognition of members of our armed forces and our veterans. However, legislation pertaining to national security issues, the elimination of terrorism and the terrorists, especially the obliteration of ISIS, the security of our nation’s borders, the prevention of illegal immigration and of amnesty for illegal aliens, the repeal of Obamacare, the achievement of US energy independence, the restoration of the US economy, the preservation of Second Amendment rights, the survival of our ally, Israel, and the elimination of human rights violations by repressive communist and Islamic regimes is extremely important to us. As defenders of our nation and human freedom, how could we feel otherwise?
We wish Congressman Lamborn success in his campaign and look forward to his continued service to our nation as a member of the United States House of Representatives.
John J. Molloy, OSJ

He has a stellar, 100% voting record on small business issues in Congress. And that's important, because it bears reminding everyone that small businesses employ the majority of working Americans, generate almost all new jobs, but have distinctly different difficulties in remaining solvent than big businesses." - Tony Gagliardi, NFIB State Director
National Right to Life endorses Congressman Doug Lamborn - 2014

Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition - 2014
When PPFC looks to endorse candidates, they ask, "how effective will that candidate be in building coalitions and working with others to support or oppose legislation?

That's why Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition has chosen a Second Amendment leader like Congressman Doug Lamborn.
Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum - 2014
"Doug Lamborn has been an exemplary congressman. When the pro-family agenda needs a champion in Congress, we know we can count on Doug. From his commitment to local control of education to his work on behalf of religious liberty, Doug understands the importance of traditional values to our nation's well-being. He has worked tirelessly in Congress to strengthen them.
Doug Lamborn's record demonstrates his belief that life must be protected at all stages. As a sponsor or cosponsor of over fifty pieces of pro-life legislation, Doug has been a leader in protecting the unborn. To build and maintain a culture that respects life and promotes the family, we need people like Doug in Washington. He has been a faithful conservative. If the Fifth District reelects him, we would all enjoy the results of his good work."
Our Democrat opponent has called the label pro-life "too simplistic". We need a strong champion for our values in Congress, not someone who is going to be hesitant about the fundamental issue of life.

Compromising on principle is not the solution to our country's fiscal crisis.

Dr. James Dobson Endorses Congressman Doug Lamborn - 2012 - Present
"Speaking as a private individual, it is with confidence and enthusiasm that I endorse the nomination and re-election of Doug Lamborn for the United States Congress, Colorado District 05. His voting record as a true conservative has never wavered since taking office. He was credited with a 100% voting record by the Conservative Union, the Club for Growth, Americans for Prosperity, and a 99% rating for the third year in a row by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste This organization also named him Taxpayer Hero. His voting record against government spending was the highest in the Colorado Congressional Delegation. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded him with the Annual Spirit of Enterprise Award.
In addition to Congressman Lamborn’s record as a fiscal conservative, he has consistently voted in support of all conservative social issues. Again, he received a 100% congressional scorecard from the Family Research Council and earned their “True Blue” award for his key House votes on pro-family issues. He opposed the Confirmation of Judge Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, and joined with 78 Members of Congress in urging President Obama not to overturn the Mexico City policy which separates abortion and family planning in America’s foreign aid programs.
Lamborn is a committed Christian, and he has participated every year in the observance of the National Day of Prayer. From my perspective, he is one of our finest Members of Congress and I ask my fellow Coloradans to send him back to Washington for another term. He is a good husband and father whom I respect highly."
