WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today received the “True Blue” Member of Congress award from FRC Action and Focus Action for unwavering commitment and consistent support in defense of the family.
“I am honored to receive the ‘True Blue’ award,” Inhofe said. “I have been consistently pro-life and pro-family throughout my years in office, and I will continue to fight for these important issues.”
“Members of the 110th Congress who receive this award have shown themselves to be consistent defenders of faith, family, and freedom,” said FRC Action President Tony Perkins. “I applaud these Members for upholding the institutions of marriage and family even in the face of hostile opposition from the hostile liberal leadership. Voters should be encouraged by the commitment these True Blue Members have shown.”
Recipients of the award are determined by voting behavior on issues such as abortion funding, marriage, and hate crimes. The award honors Members of Congress who have exhibited extraordinary leadership and commitment to the defense of family, faith, and freedom, according to FRC Action’s scorecard covering the votes of the 110th Congress.
