ACU Endorses Dave Brat

Alexandria, VA – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Dave Brat for reelection in Virginia to the United States House of Representatives in the 7th District.

“Congressman Dave Brat’s brand of consistent and principled conservatism is a much-needed voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. Rep. Brat’s 100% ACUF Lifetime Rating demonstrates exactly how deeply committed Dave is working toward real conservative solutions to the problems Virginia’s working families face every day. Voters can count on Dave Brat to fiercely advocate for reasonable commonsense economically-sound legislation that lifts up all Virginians, not just a select few. ACU and I am very proud to stand with him and pledge our support for his important reelection to Congress,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the nation’s original conservative organization. For more than fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. As one of America's premier conservative voices, ACU promotes a conservative vision on issues before Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media, political candidates, and the public.
