Join ACU to Award this Year’s Top VA Conservatives on 1-28-16 @ 10:00 AM

January 14, 2016

The American Conservative Union (ACU) will be hosting its 2015 Virginia General Assembly awards ceremony and breakfast on January 28th at 10:00 AM. As in past years, we will be recognizing those Delegates and Senators who best adhere to the principles of our Constitution and uphold conservative values, as determined by ACU’s 2015 Ratings of Virginia.

We are pleased to announce that in our 5th year of rating Virginia, a total of 50 Delegates and Senators will be presented with awards.

Since 1964, the ACU has been a driving force in defending the principles of life, liberty and property. Like our annual Conservative Political Action Conference ([cpac.org]CPAC) and Congressional Ratings Guide, ACU educates conservatives across the country through our State Ratings Program. This year’s awardees received a score of 80% and above in ACU’s Rating of the Virginia General Assembly.

We hope that you will consider joining us at this important event to recognize this year’s defenders of conservatism.

A threat to the giant corporations of today because they are in their garage starting the company that will become the giant corporation of tomorrow.”
