Olson Honored with Conservative Excellence Award
Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) was honored yesterday with the â€œAward for Conservative Excellenceâ€ from the American Conservative Union (ACU). In 2015, Olson received a 92% conservative rating from the ACU. These ratings are based on membersâ€™ votes on key measures of importance to conservatives.
â€œI am honored to receive this award from the American Conservative Union,â€ Rep. Olson said. â€œAs a committed conservative, I will continue to fight for the principles of liberty and limited government for Texas and America. Following the Constitution is not a suggestion, itâ€™s the law of the land and I will continue to push its conservative values as long as I am honored to serve in Congress.â€
The American Conservative Union (ACU) is the nationâ€™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.
