WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has been honored with the Freedom Fighter Award from leading grassroots conservative organization FreedomWorks. This year’s Freedom Fighter Award was presented to members of Congress who consistently voted to defend economic freedom in 2013.
Congressman Jones was one of the top 10 highest-ranked members of the entire House of Representatives and the highest-ranked member of the North Carolina congressional delegation on FreedomWorks’ annual scorecard with a near-perfect rating on 21 key votes. Scored votes included those to stop raising the debt limit, to cut wasteful government spending, to repeal and defund Obamacare, and to prevent the federal government from spying on U.S. citizens without a warrant, among other things.
“It is an honor to receive this year’s Freedom Fighter Award,” said Congressman Jones. “As a member of Congress, it is my greatest privilege and responsibility to advance the principles of freedom on which America was founded.”
