Group names Foxx as one of 2007’s “Best & Brightest”

WASHINGTON – The American Conservative Union (ACU) today named Congresswoman Virginia Foxx as one of Congress’ “Best & Brightest” for her conservative voting record in 2007. The ACU designates members of Congress as the “Best & Brightest” based on its annual Rating of Congress.

“The conservative values of small government and individual freedom consistently inform the way I vote in Congress,” Foxx said. “It is an honor to be recognized by the ACU for my conservative record on the issues that have come up for a vote in the past year.”

Those members of Congress who scored 100 percent in the ACU Rating of Congress were named to ACU’s “Best & Brightest” list. Only 62 members of the House of Representatives received this honor.

The group’s 2007 vote rating took into account 25 votes on a wide variety of issues including earmark reform, border security, free speech, national energy policy and tax cuts. ACU Chairman David A. Keene presented Rep. Foxx with the award, noting that she has been “a stalwart defender of the conservative vision of individual liberty and limited constitutional government.”

The American Conservative Union was founded in 1964 to advance the goals and principles of conservatism at the national level. The ACU’s congressional vote scorecards are widely recognized as the gold standard of conservative ratings by conservatives across America.
