The Family Research Council announced this week that it gave its "True Blue" Award to both
Idaho Senators - Mike Crapo and Jim Risch.
Idaho's servants in Washington were recognized by the pro-family group for their 100% records on key family issues - including the defense of preborn children. They were among just 8 members of the U.S. Senate to earn a 100% grade.
Senator Crapo issued a statement in which he said, "Voting to defend traditional, pro-family policies in Washington is just part of the overall effort to protect the family."
"This award is just a reflection of the values of Idahoans," said Sen. Risch. "They have placed a great trust in me to represent their pro-family values in Washington."
Tony Perkins, head of FRC, singled out the senators' votes to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal ObamaCare, and prevent tax-funding of abortions as critical components of their record.
We offer our congratulations to these fine men, and express our gratitude that Idaho is so blessed.
