Graham Wins FRC Action’s ‘True Blue’ Award for Consistent Support of Family

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) has been recognized as a True Blue member of the Senate by FRC Action and Focus on the Family Action for his unwavering commitment to the family. 

The award honors member of the House and Senate who have exhibited extraordinary leadership and commitment to the defense of family, faith, and freedom, according to FRC Action’s new scorecard.  The scorecard covers Senate votes during the 1st session of the 110th Congress. Recipients of the award voted consistently for pro-life and pro-family issues.

The votes included efforts to defend grassroots organizations efforts to influence public policy, health care for unborn children, confirming Judge Leslie Southwick to the U.S. Court of Appeals and federal hate crimes legislation.

“The Members of the 110th Congress who received this award have been consistent, stalwart allies of American families,” said FRC Action President Tony Perkins.  “These Members are to be commended for supporting public policy that values human life, protects our religious liberties, and upholds the institutions of marriage and the family.”

“I applaud Senator Graham for defending pro-family and pro-life policies that have been under attack this past year,” said Perkins.  “Values voters should be encouraged by these Members who have shown a commitment to protecting and strengthening the family.”
