ACU Endorses Ron Johnson

Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Senator Ron Johnson (Lifetime ACU Rating: 93.4%) for re-election, the leading conservative in Wisconsin’s race for Senate.

"As the CEO of a successful manufacturing plant, Ron Johnson has brought his keen business sense to the Senate, where he has fought the Obama administration's crippling regulatory regime and never-ending quest to hike taxes," said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.  "At the same time, he has consistently fought for the rights of the unborn and protected our religious freedoms.  I strongly urge conservatives to rally behind Ron Johnson and his bid for re-election to the U.S. Senate.”

Senator Ron Johnson responded to ACU’s endorsement by saying, "As an Oshkosh manufacturer, I built a career creating jobs and solving problems.  That's the approach I've used in the Senate to find common ground and get real results for Wisconsinites.  I'm proud to have the endorsement of the American Conservative Union, and I'm committed to fighting for greater economic growth, a stronger national security, and more opportunity for all."

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.
