Republican State Senate candidate Whitney Westerfield says he took part in the “Chick-Fil-A” appreciation day to support their leadership’s support of traditional families.
Chief Operations Officer Dan Cathy recently became famous for saying he supported traditional marriage between a man and woman—with some pro-gay groups choosing to boycott the popular fast food chain.
Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and others called for conservatives to eat at Chick-Fil-A on August 1st, which third district state senate candidate Whitney Westerfield said he did in Clarksville.
A news release from Westerfield says quote: “The union of marriage between one man and one woman is sacred and represents the biblical idea of marriage”. He says he will vote to protect the traditional definition of marriage every time, if elected.
He faces off with incumbent State Senator Joey Pendleton in November.
