Chris Nwasike Visits with Niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. During Campaign Swing in Orlando
Conservative Chris Nwasike, a candidate for Florida’s Third Congressional District, visited with conservative and pro-life advocates including Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., during a visit to Orlando.
“I am honored to have been able to visit with Dr. Alveda King. She and her uncle have been role models for me and her commitment to pro-life issues is an inspiration. She prayed for me and encouraged me to use this opportunity to take the third district in a new direction, one that pleases God and rids it out of its current social economic issues,” said Nwasike.
Nwasike also met with Dean Nelson, the Vice President of the Frederick Douglas Foundation which helps to support African-American conservatives for elected office. The Foundation is also a public policy and educational organization that focuses on the promotion of free market and limited government ideas.
Nwasike had the opportunity to meet with Sylvia Johnson with the Downtown Pregnancy Center at the Heartbeat International Pro-Life Conference. She has worked in Florida and throughout the country to promote pro-life solutions to pregnancy issues facing so many women in African-American communities.
