DRESDEN, Tenn., January 29, 2016– The American Conservative Union, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization, announced that Rep. Andy Holt has been awarded the coveted ACU Award For Conservative Excellence for being among the top conservatives in the State of Tennessee.
“Conservative values have always been at the forefront for me. From day one, I’ve always promised those in my district I would stick to my values and beliefs,” said Holt. “It’s not always easy to hold those views at the Capitol when so many are working against you.”
The award, which is presented to those members of the Tennessee General Assembly who scored between 90 and 100 percent on the ACU State Legislative Rating scorecard, is the organization’s highest and most revered honor available to lawmakers.
