Moments after Donald Trump finished his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, better known as CPAC, in Orlando Saturday night, Rep. Mike Jones (R-Andalusia) was awarded the Conservative Achievement Award by the American Conservative Union Foundation.

Rep. Mike Jones was presented the Conservative Achievement Award by the American Conservative Union Foundation at CPAC.

“It was an honor to be invited to CPAC,” Jones said. “To receive national recognition for the work I have done in the legislature to uphold conservative Republican values is an honor and to receive it at such a special event like CPAC made it even more special.”

CPAC is an annual political conference attended by conservative activists from across the nation. For the last several years, Donald Trump has served as the keynote speaker. This year’s event was held in Orlando, Florida.

The American Conservative Union is a conservative political organization that advocates for conservative policies, ranks politicians based on their level of conservatism and organizes the annual CPAC conference. Founded in 1964, it is the oldest ongoing conservative advocacy organization in the United States.

Rep. Mike Jones is a Republican representing District 92 in the Alabama House of Representatives. He is currently seeking the Republican nomination for the District 31 seat in the Alabama State Senate which represents Coffee, Covington, Dale and Pike counties.
