Lamborn earns top score for his voting record

The Club for Growth, the nation's leading free-market advocacy organization, announced that Congressman Doug Lamborn (CD5) has earned the annual Defender of Economic Freedom award. The award honors Members of Congress who have a strong, consistent voting record on economic growth issues. Lamborn is the only Member of the Colorado delegation to receive the award. Lamborn earned a 100 percent score for his 2010 voting record. Additionally, he is one of only five Members of Congress recognized for a lifetime ranking of 100 percent.

“My record in Washington reflects my commitment to expanding freedom and shrinking government. With record-high gas prices battering families, and an economy that is sputtering on empty, we must get control of federal spending and promote policies that will help our nation’s job creators.”– Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05)

“With his score of 100%, and a lifetime score of 100%, Rep. Lamborn has demonstrated that he is on the side of economic freedom not just at election time, but every time. The Club for Growth values Members of Congress who stand on principle over political expediency. The people of Colorado are lucky to have strong pro-growth representation in Congress.” - Chris Chocola, Club for Growth President

Club for Growth publishes an annual scorecard so Club members and the public can monitor the actions and the voting behavior of Members of Congress on economic growth issues. The Club conducted a comprehensive examination of each lawmaker’s record on pro-growth policies and computed a score on a scale of 0 to 100. A score of 100 indicates the highest support for pro-growth policies. Those lawmakers scoring 90 or higher in 2010— and who also have a lifetime score of 90 or higher—receive theDefender of Economic Freedom award.
