Congressman Barrett Named American Conservative Union ‘Best and Brightest’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Conservative Union (ACU) has named Congressman Gresham Barrett (SC, 03) one of the “Best and Brightest” Members of the 110th Congress by scoring 100% on its ratings for 2007.

“The rating of 100% Congressman Gresham Barrett received reflects consistent support for conservative principles across a broad range of issues,” said Larry Hart, ACU’s Director of Government Relations.  “By comparison, the average score for members of the House for 2007 was 43%.  Representative Barrett is someone who grassroots conservatives in South Carolina and across the country will continue to look to for leadership.”

ACU is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization.  For 37 years, its annual ratings have been widely regarded as the “gold standard,” the definitive conservative assessment of the federal legislative branch.  A complete listing of the ACU ratings for this and past congresses can be found at www.acuratings.org.
