ACU Endorses Ron DeSantis
Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Congressman Ron DeSantis’ (ACU Lifetime Score: 100%) re-election effort. ACU believes that DeSantis is the leading conservative in the race for Florida’s 6th Congressional District.
“Congressman Ron DeSantis has quickly shown great leadership in advancing conservative principles,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “I was impressed by how effectively he worked with Senator Mike Lee to push the Higher Education Reform and Opportunity (HERO) Act, a creative conservative approach to making higher education more affordable by allowing states to create their own accreditation systems.”
“DeSantis is also fighting to end the extravagant congressional pension system and, putting his money where his mouth is, refused to accept his congressional pension or subsidized health services. DeSantis’ ACU rating of 100% for his three years in Congress reflects a remarkably consistent commitment to conservative principles on a wide range issues, whether economic, cultural, or issues of national security. I urge all conservatives to vote for Ron DeSantis in the Republican Primary on August 30th,” concluded Schlapp.
Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union 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.
