Red, White, and True Blues

Even members of Congress sometimes deserve a pat on the back! This morning, I was on Capitol Hill with our Government Affairs and FRC Action teams to applaud the House and Senate members who earned a perfect 100% on FRC Action's annual scorecard.

Thirty-eight of the 125 congressional "True Blue" winners dropped by the Capitol Hill Club for a special reception hosted by FRC Action and AFA Action, and it was encouraging to see the camaraderie in the room among the leaders who take the slings and arrows as they stand for family values. So many leaders expressed their gratitude for the work FRC does and said how honored they were to receive our award. Often times these members only hear from their constituents when they do something wrong, especially on value issues, and while that's important it is equally necessary to thank them as well for their stalwart stance.

This year, FRC Action scored votes on everything from abortion restrictions and veterans affairs to legalized marijuana and safeguarding conscience rights. I appreciate the members who took time out of their busy schedules to join me -- as well as the FRC, and FRC Action staff, David Christensen, Josh Duggar, Leanna Baumer, Quena Gonzalez, Nick Frase, and Jamie Dangers -- for your tireless efforts for our values.

Congratulations to the 113th Congress's class of True Blue winners! To see how your Congressman voted, click here and search by name or state. Then, when you get a minute, let them know how much you appreciate their commitment to faith, family, and freedom!
