ORLANDO, FL – Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, was honored recently with the Ronald Reagan Freedom Fighter Award at the California Republican Assembly in Buena Park, California. Staver also gave the keynote speech, “Religious Freedom Under Fire,” and addressed the current vacancy left from the recent passing of Justice Scalia.
The California Republican Assembly, a conservative activist group affiliated with the National Federation of Republican Assemblies (NFRA), is the oldest and largest grassroots volunteer organization chartered by the California Republican Party.
“I am honored to receive the Ronald Reagan Freedom Fighter award from such a distinguished organization that was directly involved in the Reagan Revolution. To receive this award the same day as Justice Scalia’s funeral is sobering. President Reagan nominated Justice Scalia to the Supreme Court in 1986 and this singular act impacted America. It is our duty to fill Justice Scalia’s seat with someone who will carry on his legacy of respect for the Constitution,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.
