Former Montana Senator will reach out to other conservatives at CPAC
Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty is a network of conservatives questioning the alignment of capital punishment with conservative principles. The new national group was spawned by the efforts of Montana Conservatives Concerned About The Death Penalty. “Conservatives from across the country have joined this effort since I first called for repeal of the death penalty as Majority Leader in 2003,” Brown said. “Today, in addition to the sanctity of life issue, conservatives are questioning the exorbitant costs, the errors that risk innocent lives, and the impact the system has on victims’ families.”
Mr. Brown will be joined at CPAC by other conservatives from Texas, Kentucky, Kansas and elsewhere who share his concerns.
Brown is a former Majority Leader of the Montana House of Representatives, a former state senator and was the republican nominee for governor in 2008. He is a founding member of Montana Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.
“Conservatives should question how the death penalty actually works in order to stay true to small government, reduction in wasteful spending, and respect for human life,” said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice and a supporter of Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.
