American Conservative Union PAC Endorses Tony Strickland for U.S. Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today endorsed Tony Strickland for U.S. Congress in the 26th District of California.

ACU Chairman Al Cardenas issued the following statement:

“Tony Strickland is the clear conservative choice for California’s 26th District. Tony Strickland has been a leader on issues of concern to conservatives in the California legislature. While in the Assembly, he forced then Governor Gray Davis to reveal expensive energy contracts negotiated in secret with companies like Enron. In the State Senate, Tony Strickland has helped lead a consistent effort to solve California’s economic woes by capping spending, reforming the pension system and regulation reform. He will bring those leadership qualities to the Congress. I urge all conservatives to support Tony Strickland for Congress in the June Primary and again 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.
