The American Conservative Union Endorses Dr. Gosar

For Immediate Release
Date: August 18, 2016

Washington, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Congressman Paul Gosar (2015 ACU Score: 96%) for re-election, the leading conservative in Arizona’s race for the 4th Congressional District. 

“As Vice-Chairman of the Western Caucus, Gosar helped shape this year’s Interior spending bill that blocked President Obama’s land grabs and cut EPA funding,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.  “On the House Oversight Committee, Gosar has been a thorn in the side of overreaching federal bureaucrats like EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.  I urge all conservatives to vote for Paul Gosar in the Republican Primary August 30.”

Paul Gosar responded to ACU’s endorsement by saying, “It’s an honor to receive the endorsement of the American Conservative Union.  My race features a big government RINO [my opponent] versus a proven conservative leader dedicated to securing the border, upholding the Rule of Law and defending our Constitution.  At a time when open border advocates and establishment-backed special-interest groups are trying to pick off conservatives throughout the country, the support of principled organizations like the ACU is even more important and appreciated.”

Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union is the nation’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.  As one of America’s premier conservative voices, ACU promotes a conservative vision on issues before Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media, political candidates, and the public.
