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.

10/21/20 - Rep. Beyer tweeted "Donald Trump has a secret Chinese bank account, new properties in Scotland opened while he was in office, half a billion dollars owed to creditors like Deutsche Bank, licensing deals in Turkey, India, and the Philippines, and the Saudi government spent millions at his hotels.|The media is desperately trying to distract from Biden alleged criminal activity. It’s quite simple: When my father became President, we stepped out of all international business. When Hunter Biden's father became Vice President, he stepped into international business."

10/17/20 - Rep. Beyer tweeted "The United States must stand with the Armenian people against Azerbaijan's aggressive acts on the Artsakh border and Turkey's military interference. I'm cosponsoring legislation that affirms America's support for peace." View the tweet here.

09/29/20 - Rep. Beyer tweeted "If reports that an Armenian fighter was shot down by Turkey are true, this is a dangerous escalation. The U.S. should do everything in our power to stop the violence. We must oppose aggressive measures in Nagorno-Karabakh and push for peace." View the tweet here.

Beyer tweeted "Trump let Erdogan's thugs get away with assaulting people in DC two years ago without lifting a finger, then sounded a retreat so Erdogan's forces could attack our allies the Kurds.Welcoming this authoritarian to the White House today was another embarrassing act of submission." View the tweet here.

10/29/19 - Rep. Beyer tweeted "The House just passed a resolution to recognize the Armenian Genocide. This was always the right thing to do, and it's more important than ever now -- as we witness the ugly specter of ethnic cleansing again in the same region, this time against the Kurds in Northern Syria." View the tweet here.

10/27/19 - Rep. Beyer posted the following to Facebook: "It’s time to start holding Turkey accountable for its actions. Both Congress and the White House have remained silent on this issue for far too long, and I look forward to changing that next week." View the Facebook post here.

10/15/19 - Rep. Beyer tweeted "Turkey’s attacks on Kurds in Syria are especially alarming given the history of prior attacks on ethnic minorities in this region. I agree with @tedlieu — today would be a good day for the United States to recognize the Armenian Genocide." View the tweet here.
