Washington, D.C. –   The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today announced its endorsement of Senator Pat Roberts.

“Sen. Roberts’ lifetime ACU rating of 86, as well as his average of 89 during the Obama Era, shows his consistent support of conservative principles on a wide variety of issues. He has fought for the rights of the unborn, supported the repeal of the Death Tax and opposed many efforts to divert defense funds to big government domestic programs. In addition, Senator Roberts helped lead the successful fight to defeat one of the worst nominations by President Obama, that of Donald Berwick, who preferred the British system of government health care to ours, to head up the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.  Pat Roberts deserves the support of conservatives in the Republican Primary August 5.” said ACU Director of Government Relations Larry Hart.

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 2013 Ratings of Congress, the 43rd edition of the conservative ratings guide. For more information on the ACU PAC or to download the full 2013 Ratings of Congress, please visit
