Congressman Forbes Recognized by the American Conservative Union for Outstanding Conservative Record


Washington, D.C. -- Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04) has been awarded the 2015 Award for Conservative Excellence by the American Conservative Union (ACU), in recognition of his stellar voting record and commitment to championing conservative values in Congress. The ACU bestows this award upon those Members of Congress who have shown unwavering dedication to America's core founding principles and a consistent record of protecting and upholding the Constitution.

"As Americans, we are stewards of this grand experiment in liberty and democracy we call the United States. We must not allow it to slip through our fingers," said Congressman Forbes. "I'm proud to be in the fight to rebuild our military, rein in out-of-control government spending, and stop political correctness from undermining our faith freedoms. Because the decisions we make today -- in Congress and in our communities -- will dictate the opportunities, future, and freedom of Americans tomorrow."

The ACU's annual awards recognize Members of the House of Representative and the Senate whose voting records score within the top twenty percent on key issues, from wasteful government spending to national defense to free market enterprise. Congressman Forbes received a 96% rating for his work in the 114th Congress to strengthen national security, champion religious freedom, empower job creators, and protect individual liberty. To read the complete report, click here.
