American Conservative Union PAC Endorses Wendy Long for U.S. Senate


May 21, 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today endorsed Wendy Long for New York’s U.S. Senate seat, currently held by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

ACU Chairman Al Cardenas issued the following statement:

“Wendy Long is the strong choice for conservatives in the New York Senate race. She has a long record of work and support for conservative principles. Having clerked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Wendy then was instrumental in building support for the confirmations of now Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito. The incumbent, Kirsten Gillibrand has abandoned her moderate stances as a congresswoman from upstate New York on issues such as Second Amendment Rights to become a clone of the senior Senator from New York, Chuck Schumer. I urge all conservatives to support Wendy Long in the Republican Primary June 26 and help her defeat Kirsten Gillibrand in November.”

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.
