One of the issues closest to Andre Bauer’s heart is family values. Born and raised in a good Christian home in Charleston, S.C., 46 years ago, he passes along his blessings and those homegrown conservative values today through his service to his home state and her people.
Families are the cornerstone of our culture and of a strong society. It’s within a family unit foundation that values, ideals and lessons for life are founded. The Republican Party believes that every child deserves the chance to be born and grow up in a loving family. We also believe that while families exist in many different forms, there are ideals to strive for. Evidence shows us that children have the best chance at success when raised by a mother and a father who love and respect each other as well as their children. We also know that family breakdown makes America less stable. To create a sturdy foundation for the strength and success of our citizens and our nation, Republicans support policies that promote strong families. We also support a government that makes it easier for parents to raise their children in a world that offers unprecedented opportunities and new challenges. We offer an approach based on our common values and our common hopes.
