Washington, D.C. — Penny Nance responds to White House press secretary Josh Earnest’s characterization of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee’s rally today in Lafayette Park as “pro-war.” Attending the rally was Armed Services Subcommittee Chairman Vicky Hartzler (R-Missouri), Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and others.
Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) CEO and President Penny Nance had this to say:
“I’m disappointed that White House press secretary Josh Earnest chose to double down on politics instead of listening to our message. The truth is, any agreement with Iran that makes the U.S. and Israel less safe and leaves behind four American hostages is a bad deal. CWALAC opposes the deal with Iran based on the fact that it makes America and Israel vulnerable.
“He’s foolish to insult the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization. Many of our members have served in the U.S. military or are the wife or mother of a U.S. military member. If he were a gentleman, he would apologize.”
