Congressman Mo Brooks, R-Alabama, recently announced that he received the American Conservative Union’s Conservative Achievement Award for his 2020 voting record, which they said upheld America’s foundational principles and free-enterprise system.

This was the second consecutive year that the American Conservative Union scored Brooks as the top-rated member of Alabama’s delegation.

Brooks’ 2020 ACU rating was 56 percentage points higher than the average member of Congress and 14 percentage points higher than the average Republican member of Congress.

Brooks scored in the top 10 percent in 2020 and in 2019 was the highest-scoring member among all 435 members.

Brooks said: “The American Conservative Union (“ACU”) is one of America’s oldest and most revered conservative organizations. I’m proud to receive ACU’s Conservative Achievement Award for my 2020 voting record upholding America’s foundational principles and free-enterprise economic system. With the onslaught of radical socialist policies sweeping through Washington, it’s more important than ever to fight for the pro-liberty, pro-Constitution, and America First policies that have combined to make America the greatest nation in world history. I’m proud to have ACU as an ally in the fight.”

“For ten consecutive years in Congress, Representative Mo Brooks has earned an award from ACU Foundation for his outstanding conservative voting record,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp. “With 100% ACU Ratings in areas such as elections, the Second Amendment, and personal liberty, Alabamans have a reliable and fearless advocate for freedom in Rep. Brooks. We are proud to recognize him with yet another Award for Conservative Excellence and wish him continued success.”

Brooks is a founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus. The congressman is serving in his sixth term representing Alabama’s 5th Congressional District. Brooks is a 2020 candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate
