Feb. 15, 2013. Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-NC) has been recognized as a “True Blue” Member of Congress by FRC Action and CitizenLink for her unwavering commitment and consistent support in defense of life and the family.
“Life is the most fundamental of all human rights. Faith and freedom are our country’s very foundation. And the family remains the bulwark of American society,” Congresswoman Foxx stated. The “True Blue” Award is a thoughtful reminder of the importance of strengthening life, faith, and family for which I am humbled and thankful.”
Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
“We thank Congresswoman Virginia Foxx who has voted consistently to defend faith, family and freedom. Virginia and other ‘True Blue Members’ have voted to repeal Obamacare, protect the unborn, and stand for religious liberty. I applaud their commitment to defend family and faith.”
Foxx was one of 89 current representatives and four current senators to be honored with the award for the second session of the 112th Congress, scoring a perfect 100 percent on this year’s scorecard.
