Cassville, GA – State Senator Barry Loudermilk today announced that the nationally recognized author, historian and constitutional expert David Barton has endorsed his campaign for Congress.
“There is no greater expert on the U.S. Constitution and the underpinnings of American government, than David Barton,” Barry said. “I am extremely proud that what he has seen in our campaign has moved him to lend us his reputation and support.
“Barry understands the roots, history and aspirations of our Republic as very few candidates for public office do,” Barton said. “He is uniquely knowledgeable about and dedicated to our American system of government and to the responsibilities and liberties our founding fathers enshrined for us all more than two Centuries ago. We need people like Barry in office to keep the spirit of those documents alive and well in Washington, D.C.”
Biography of David Barton
David Barton is the Founder and President of WallBuilders, a national pro-family organization that presents America’s forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on our moral, religious and constitutional heritage.
WallBuilders is a name taken from the Old Testament writings of Nehemiah, who led a grassroots movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore its strength and honor. In the same way, WallBuilders seeks to energize the grassroots today to become involved in strengthening their communities, states, and nation.
David is the author of numerous best-selling books, with the subjects being drawn largely from his massive library of tens of thousands of original writings from the Founding Era. He also addresses well over 400 groups each year.
His exhaustive research has rendered him an expert in historical and constitutional issues and he serves as a consultant to state and federal legislators, has participated in several cases at the Supreme Court, was involved in the development of the History/Social Studies standards for states such as Texas and California, and has helped produce history textbooks now used in schools across the nation.
A national news organization has described him as “America’s historian,” and Time Magazine called him “a hero to millions – including some powerful politicians.” In fact, Time Magazine named him as one of America’s 25 most influential evangelicals.
David has received numerous national and international awards, including Who’s Who in Education, DAR’s Medal of Honor, and the George Washington Honor Medal from the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge. His work in media has merited several Angel Awards, Telly Awards, and the Dove Foundation Seal of Approval.
David and his wife Cheryl have three grown children, Damaris, Timothy, and Stephen, and they reside in Aledo, TX.
