WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today endorsed Ted Cruz for Texas’ U.S. Senate seat, currently held by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.
ACU Chairman Al Cardenas issued the following statement:
“Ted Cruz is the clear conservative choice for conservatives in Texas. Ted Cruz’ outstanding record as Solicitor General for the state of Texas includes landmark victories on major issues facing our country, including U.S. sovereignty, Second Amendment Rights and religious freedom. Ted Cruz has dedicated his career to fighting for conservative principles and the U.S. Constitution and will undoubtedly bring these leadership qualities to the Senate. His family history is a true American success story. This includes Ted Cruz becoming the first Hispanic to clerk for a Chief Justice of the United States, William Rehnquist. Texans have a once in a generation opportunity to elect a true conservative rising star to the U.S. Senate and I urge all conservatives to support Ted Cruz in the Texas Republican Runoff on July 31.”
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. For more information on the ACU PAC or to download the full 2011 Ratings of Congress, please visit conservative.org. To support, or learn more about, Ted Cruz, visit tedcruz.org.
