WASHINGTON, DC – Once again, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has received The New American’s Constitution Award for a perfect score on the publication’s 2017 Freedom Index.   Every year, The New American editorial board rates members of Congress on 10 key votes that reflect important constitutional principles of freedom, such as reining in debt and unnecessary regulations, supporting traditional values, and defending second amendment rights. This year, Congressman Jones joined Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) as the only three members of Congress to earn 100% ratings.

“As I work for Eastern North Carolina in the House of Representatives, it is my responsibility to protect the Constitution with every vote I cast,” said Congressman Jones. “It is an honor to be recognized along with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and my good friend, Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY).  They are true patriots, and I look forward to continuing our fight for freedom and the Constitution.”
