“I ran for Congress to represent commonsense conservative values, so I am pleased to see that the American Conservative Union has recognized my work.  Whether it is fighting to reduce the size of government, protecting the unborn, or returning our nation to its founding Constitutional principles, I have practiced what I preach every day in Congress,” Fleischmann said.

“The ACU Conservative Award is a reflection of Representative Chuck Fleischmann’s consistent support of conservative principles on a wide range of issues of concern to grassroots conservatives in 2011. At a time when the fundamental principles of the American system of government are being challenged, Representative Chuck Fleischmann stands with those who are trying to preserve those principles,” said American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas.
