Senate hopeful George Allen received a coveted endorsement from conservative grass-roots organization American Conservative Union today, according to a press release from the organization.

The ACU cites Allen’s record of conservative leadership for fiscal responsibility, government transparency and accountability, and pro-life policies, as reasons for their endorsement.

Allen, former governor of Virginia, is running for retiring Sen. Jim Webb's seat. If he wins the primary he will face off against former governor and DNC chair Tim Kaine.

“It’s an honor to receive the important endorsement of the American Conservative Union, the leading voice of America’s conservative principles,” said Allen.

“I’m proud to stand for proven, conservative solutions that hold government accountable, reduce taxes and burdensome regulations on families and job-creating businesses, unleash our American energy resources, and free our economy to grow and create jobs.

"This election will determine whether future generations will have the same opportunities to achieve the American dream as we had growing up. I believe that our country’s foundational principles of freedom, personal responsibility and opportunity for all will reinvigorate the entrepreneurial spirit of our country with pro-job growth, competitive economic, productive energy, and empowering education policies. Let's join together to send a positive message to the world that America is open for business again.”
