American Conservative Union to Announce Annual ACU Ratings of the Florida Legislature
Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU), will honor the award winners of our second ACU Ratings of the Florida Legislature on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 in Tallahassee, Florida. ACU Chairman Al Cardenas will hold a media availability on Wednesday, December 5 in Tallahassee, FL, to announce its second conservative Ratings of the Florida Legislature. The event will coincide with the announcement and release of the ACU’s second Florida 2012 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 states of Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, and the Commonwealth of Virginia. In its 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 Florida Legislature include scores for each individual member in both the 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 Sunshine State.”
The following event is OPEN to the press:
