June 14, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C.– The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today endorsed Orrin Hatch for Utah’s U.S. Senate seat.“For 35 years, Senator Orrin Hatch has fought hard for the people of Utah, standing up for the rights of the unborn, the Second Amendment and pushing for a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution,” said ACU Chairman Al Cardenas. “At a time when fundamental American principles are being challenged, Senator Orrin Hatch stands with those who are trying to preserve those principles.”“The ACU PAC is proud to endorse Senator Orrin Hatch and highlight his lifetime ACU congressional rating of 90,” said ACU PAC Chairman Larry Eastland. “Earlier this year Senator Hatch earned the ‘ACU Defender of Liberty Award,’ reflecting his outstanding support of conservative principles on a wide range of issues in 2011, resulting in a perfect ratings score of 100.”

The ACU Political Action Committee is the political arm of the American Conservative Union, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization. The committee supports candidates for office who reflect the conservative principles on which ACU was founded. The goals of the ACU PAC are to increase the number of quality candidates who share our commitment to conservative principles and to protecting and advancing the fiscal, social and security priorities of the Reagan era. These funds are utilized in conjunction with endorsements and public announcements to communicate our support for chosen candidates to their constituents and conservatives across the nation.

The ACU recently announced its 2011 Ratings of Congress, the 41st edition of the conservative ratings guide.
