Gov. Mike Huckabee, Honorary National Chairman of My Faith Votes, Releases Thanksgiving Statement
DALLAS — Gov. Mike Huckabee, honorary national chairman of My Faith Votes, releases a statement reflecting on Thanksgiving Day:
“Here’s the undeniable, historical truth about Thanksgiving: It’s an American holiday explicitly created to remind us that God is the great source of every blessing. Time after time, especially in the face of adversity, our forefathers turned to God — not only to give thanks but to also humbly repent before Him. They understood God’s blessings follow those who obey and seek Him.
“This Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to also turn to God in gratitude and repentance. In fact, I believe there’s never been a more urgent time for us to remember the Judeo-Christian values of our faith that have kept us on a path of blessing. Let’s not waste this national moment — it could turn America around.”
My Faith Votes—whose founding honorary national chairman was Dr. Ben Carson—is a non-partisan movement focused on motivating Christians in America to participate in local and national elections and be active members of society. By partnering with local churches, pastors and national faith leaders, My Faith Votes mobilizes and resources Christians to lead the conversation on the place of faith in culture and politics. In the 2016 election, My Faith Votes was largely credited with activating a sizable percentage of the 25 million Evangelicals who were registered to vote in previous elections but had chosen not to, prompting a record turnout by Evangelicals.
