New CPAC Analysis – NC Legislature’s Battle Against Gov. Roy Cooper
Awards to be Presented to Top-Scoring North Carolina Lawmakers at CPAC
ALEXANDRIA, VA (January 5, 2022)— North Carolina’s Republican legislators rank among the most conservative in the country, according to just released voting record analysis from ACUF’s Center for Legislative Accountability. Lawmakers received high marks for fighting to combat Gov. Roy Cooper’s excessive COVID-19 shutdown policies and for their efforts to try to advance conservative legislation relating to election security safeguards and school choice.
This year ACU will be inviting a large delegation of NC legislators to receive awards for their conservative voting records at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) taking place in Orlando, Florida from February 24-27, 2022. To earn an invitation, a lawmaker must vote with the conservative position at least 80% of the time, as calculated by the American Conservative Union Foundation’s Center for Legislative Accountability.
The following scores represent how often Republican and Democratic leadership voted with the conservative position:
President Pro Tem. Phil Berger (94%)
Deputy President Pro Tem. Ralph Hise (91%)
Majority Leader Kathy Harrington (93%)
Democratic Leader Dan Blue (27%)
Democratic Whip Jay J. Chaudhuri (23%)
Speaker Tim Moore (92%)
Speaker Pro Tem. Sarah Stevens (90%)
Majority Leader John R. Bell IV (91%)
Democratic Leader Robert Reives (23%)
Deputy Democratic Leader Gale Adcock (33%)
Among the 79 roll call votes scored by the American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF) are the election integrity reforms (S 326 and S 725), legislation meant to safeguard the Second Amendment (S 43 and H 398), efforts to expand school choice (H 32 and S 671), and legislation banning “critical race theory” in schools (H 324).
ACUF’s Ratings of Congress and Ratings of the States are initiatives of American Conservative Union Foundation (ACUF)’s Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA). These ratings are designed to reflect how more than 8,000 elected officials across the nation view the role of government while illustrating the differences between chambers of the legislature and revealing lawmakers’ positions across 186 policy areas that directly affect citizens.
