Floyd and Mary Beth Brown founded Citizens United in their kitchen back in 1988. You may have heard of that organization because it was the victorious party in the case that rolled back the dreadful McCain-Feingold campaign finance laws in the Supreme Court Decision, Citizens United v. The Federal Election Commission . Floyd is now the chairman of the Western Center for Journalism, which was started by Joseph Farah. His wife, Mary Beth, authored the book, Hand of Providence: The Strong and Quiet Faith of Ronald Reagan”.
In a very recent article in Townhall Magazine (online), the Browns tell of their trip to Israel with Governor Mike Huckabee. They came away from the trip believing that he should be the next president of the United States. They cited his compassion, warmth of character and demeanor, and described him as unflappable. This is an important and early endorsement for the former Governor of Arkansas, should he decide to run.
Here is a short snippet of the article:
We have spent years of our lives observing politicians, seeing many attempt to treat those around them respect and equality, yet few reaching the ideal. Mike Huckabee achieved this feat with such natural grace it was truly a sight to behold. He chatted with equal energy and concern with the bus drivers and tour guides as he did with top government officials. With Mike Huckabee, what you see is what you get. There are no hidden agendas and none of the arrogance that usually accompanies political success.
His wife also ows a business selling antique and collectible postcards on eBay since 1999. David was an activist with Operation Rescue in the early 1990s. He is a member of Trinity Presbyterian Reformed Church in Johnston, Iowa.
David suffered a stroke in 2012, but has begun to recover after almost four years of complications.To God be the Glory, I believe he is continuing a work in me, that he began when I was a child (Philippians 1:6)
