U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) released the following statement after receiving the Family Research Council’s “True Blue”award, an annual recognition for Members of Congress with a perfect voting record on faith, family values and religious freedom.
“I am honored to receive the ‘True Blue’ award from the Family Research Council in recognition of my votes to uphold conservative values,” Inhofe said. “Working with President Trump, Congress has been able to make significant progress in advancing many of the values we share—including expanding religious freedom protections and protecting the rights of the unborn. More work remains, which is why I will continue to promote legislation that puts family values first.”
Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins stated:
“We thank Sen. Inhofe for consistently voting to defend and advance faith, family and freedom. As a 'True Blue Member' he voted 100 percent on FRC Action’s Scorecard including votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, deliver long-needed tax cuts that are already providing much needed relief to working families, stand for religious liberty, end the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood, and protect pain capable babies.
“Sen. Inhofe deserves praise for his unwavering commitment to stand for life, family, marriage, and religious liberty. Oklahomans should be encouraged to know that they have a Member of Congress such as Sen. Inhofe who has come alongside other members and our president to begin the work of rebuilding our nation, and protecting the very values that made America great,” concluded Perkins.
