The American Conservative Union, one of the oldest and most respected conservative political organizations around, has begun ranking State Legislators in recent years. This year they’ve decided to rate us here in Georgia. I happen to know of two who will be honored but you’ll have to wait until next week to find out.
Received via press release:
American Conservative Union to Announce Inaugural Conservative Ratings of the Georgia Legislature
Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) will hold a Meet & Greet on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia to honor the award winners of our inaugural conservative Ratings of the Georgia General Assembly. The event will coincide with the announcement and release of the ACU’s 2012 Georgia Legislative Ratings Guide.
Last year, the American Conservative Union launched a new initiative to bring its annual Ratings of Congress – considered the gold standard of conservative voter education guides – to the state level, issuing inaugural ratings of state legislators in the battleground states of Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and the Commonwealth of Virginia. In the second year of this new program, the ACU is issuing these ratings in fifteen states, based on the legislators’ votes on conservative issues.
The ACU Ratings of the Georgia General Assembly will include scores for each individual member in both the State Senate and House of Representatives, a description of the votes scored and lists of members receiving special recognition as “Defenders of Liberty,” “ACU Conservatives” or “True Liberals of the Peach State.”
The following event is OPEN to the press:
WHAT:American Conservative Union honors award winners as part of its inaugural conservative ratings of the Georgia General Assembly.
WHO:ACU Chairman Al Cardenas will be available for media interviews.
WHEN:Tuesday, July 10, 2012, 11am -12:30pm EDT
