Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Jean Schmidt has again been named a Defender of Liberty for 2010 by the American Conservative Union. The Award is given to Members of Congress who scored a perfect 100 percent on issues of concern to grassroots conservatives.
“I am truly honored to once again be recognized by the American Conservative Union and for the conservative principles it stands for,” said Congresswoman Schmidt. “I am proud to stand with the American Conservative Union and a majority of Americans in our fight against the largest expansion of government in our lifetime,” Schmidt added.
Members of Congress were presented their awards at a reception Thursday on Capitol Hill.
