The American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) awarded Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) with one of its highest rankings, the “Reward for Conservative Excellence.”

ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability analyzed every vote taken last session to produce this year’s scorecard which samples a wide array of issues relating to fiscal, tax, regulatory, education, environment, Second Amendment rights, election security, life, and government integrity. All lawmakers in America at the federal and state levels are scored on a 100-point scale.

“It is quite an honor to receive such a high rating from the American Conservative Union Foundation,” said Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01). “It has always been my promise to the First District of Texas to fight for our founding Constitutional principles, and it is quite gratifying that the American Conservative Union and I are in basic agreement on those principles. Now more than ever, we need to unify in coming back to the foundational fundamentals that brought freedom to its highest plateau. Yet today during our current crisis, we are hearing voices say it is time to give up our freedom for the greater good that government sets for us. A founding principle was to protect freedom by insuring the government was the servant of the people, not the other way around.” 

“This year’s Ratings demonstrate that conservatives in the House largely stood united against Pelosi’s socialist plots to fundamentally transform America,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “Not only did conservatives fend off the lion’s share of Leftist attacks on American liberty, but the Senate also confirmed 105 judges despite Democrats’ vengeful, partisan obstructionism.”
