National Veterans of Foreign Wars officials want the organization's political action committee to rescind its congressional endorsements in the November elections, including one for Congressman Gene Taylor.
Bill Perkins, senior vice commander for VFW Post 3063 in Hattiesburg, said he understood that the national office had received thousands of calls and e-mails on the endorsements. The VFW has 2.1 million members.
Taylor's campaign has aired commercials about the VFW-PAC endorsement and included it on his campaign website, www.congressmangenetaylor.com.
Perkins said the VFW's demand that the PAC rescind its endorsements means that Taylor "can't ride that wagon anymore."
