The ANCA closely tracks the performance of every incumbent Senator and Representative across a broad array of pro-Armenian legislative metrics, carefully scores and objectively grades each legislator, and then – as a public service to voters interested in factoring our insights into the diverse set of criteria they consider when voting – widely circulates non-biased, fact-driven, merit-based Report Cards and Endorsements each election cycle.

Halfway through the Congressional term, in February 2022, the ANCA also provides a mid-term progress report on the legislator's performance on pro-Armenian priorities. Final grades for the legislative term and endorsements will be shared in October, 2022.

11/13/19 - Rep. Trone tweeted "Can someone explain how it’s okay to deny a White House visit to Ukraine’s President Zelensky because he didn’t launch an investigation into the President's political rivals but it’s okay to host Turkey’s President Erdogan when he DID launch attacks on the US-allied SDF in Syria?" View the tweet here.

10/10/19 - Rep. Trone posted the following to Facebook: "Capricious. Wrong-headed. Morally bankrupt. Just a few words to describe President Trump's latest terrible foreign policy decision, which abandons a U.S. ally in a critical region while letting a NATO member run roughshod over the Kurdish population in northern Syria. To make matters worse, the NYT reports Turkey has been using U.S.-gathered surveillance info, including video, in the lead up to their attack. That info is meant to help us fight ISIS, not be twisted to attack the same Kurdish forces who have been instrumental in our counterterrorism operations. This is not what the U.S. stands for." View the Facebook post here.

04/24/19 - Rep. Trone tweeted "Today, we mark the 104th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, during which 1.5 million people perished. Let us never forget this tragedy and recommit ourselves to fighting hate and injustice the world over." View the tweet here.
