The American Conservative Union (ACU) today announced its endorsement of Mr. Dave Leroy for election in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District. “Dave Leroy has a strong record of conservative leadership in Idaho, and sending him to Congress would accurately reflect the conservative and patriotic values of the men and women in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District.
Dave has served Idahoans as their Attorney General and their Lieutenant Governor and is no stranger to working toward conservative solutions at many levels of government. We need principled conservatives like Dave Leroy in Washington D.C., and his commonsense approach to leadership is something Idahoans can be proud of,” said ACU Chairman Matt Schlapp.
Founded in 1964, the American Conservative Union (ACU) is the nation’s original conservative organization. For more than fifty years, ACU has served as an umbrella organization harnessing the collective strength of conservative organizations fighting for Americans who are concerned with liberty, personal responsibility, traditional values, and strong national defense. As one of America’s premier conservative voices, ACU promotes a conservative vision on issues before Congress, the Executive Branch, State Legislatures, the media, political candidates, and the public.Leroy Leads In Poll 6:27 pm

Join me as a constitutional conservative dedicated to the rule of law. A limited function, budget balanced federal government respectful of strong states and free citizens must be our goal. It is respect for individual liberty, personal property rights and appreciation for the free market system that must be sought and preserved to revive the American Dream. Every law we pass is coercive upon some party to some degree.
Thus, Members of Congress, before a vote must always ask: “Is this constitutional, necessary, as limited in scope as possible and in the interest of my constituents?”Leroy campaign announces fundraising numbers and endorsements 9:41 pm
