Congressman Walter B. Jones Press Office
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has been chosen as a recipient of the Constitution Award by The New American in honor of his perfect score on the magazine’s Freedom Index. The Freedom Index is a congressional scorecard based on 10 votes chosen by the editorial board that reflect a representative or senator’s “adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements.” Congressman Jones was one of only 12 members of the House and Senate to earn a score of 100 percent.
“I am honored to receive the Constitution Award from The New American,” said Congressman Jones. “Our Constitution is under constant attack, and defending America’s principles of freedom is my greatest privilege and responsibility as a member of the House of Representatives.”
