GING PAC endorses Dan Coats in his bid to (once again) serve as U. S. Senator from Indiana.
Dan Coats is a tried and true conservative, and has a tremendous amount of valuable experience to his credit. Dan has previously represented Indiana in both the U.S. House and also the U. S. Senate. He left the Senate in 1999 because of a term limits promise he had made.
Throughout his career as a legislator, Dan Coats worked to reduce spending, cut taxes and reform entitlements – all issues he still champions today. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Select Committee for Intelligence, he focused on issues of defense and national security. Now more than ever, the country needs the wisdom and expertise of men like Dan Coats.
After leaving the Senate, Dan was appointed U. S. Ambassador to Germany in 2001. After serving a few years in Germany he returned to Indiana and worked as an attorney in private practice. Dan believes that churches, volunteer organizations, and local governments are best able to deal with social problems, rather than the federal government. This is not just theoretical with Dan Coats; he devotes a lot of time to civic and charitable work. He was President of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America, and along with Senator Joe Lieberman he co-chaired the Center for Jewish and Christian Values. With his wife Marcia, he founded the Foundation for American Renewal .
Dan Coats was a good Senator before, and he is needed even more today, to help America through the current crisis.
