ACU Endorses Marco Rubio

Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Senator Marco Rubio (Lifetime ACU Rating: 97%) for re-election, the leading conservative in Florida’s Senate race.

“Marco has shown a consistent commitment to conservative principles and we honor his opposition to tyrants from Cuba to Iran.  We need his voice back in the Senate,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.  “He led the fight to stop billions in taxpayer bailouts to insurance companies under the ‘risk corridor’ provision of Obamacare—the only victory over Obamacare since 2010.  Marco has also made a strong case for conservatism in multiple CPACs, most recently at CPAC 2016.  I strongly urge conservatives to support Senator Marco Rubio.”

Senator Marco Rubio responded to ACU’s endorsement by saying, “The control of the U.S. Senate is without a doubt one of the biggest fights we are facing as conservatives right now. With this Florida seat comes control of the Senate. I am working hard to ensure we maintain the Senate majority, and I look forward to returning to the Senate to continue working hard on behalf of Floridians.”

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.
