News Release from Conservative Political Action Conference, October 28, 2021

That’s according to a new analysis conducted by the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, and the American Conservative Union Foundation, (ACUF). The analysis reviewed the voting records of over 8,000 elected officials across all 50 states, and found that only 23 percent of votes cast by Hawaii lawmakers were aligned with the conservative position. Hawaii trailed only behind Vermont (21%) and Massachusetts (16%).
