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.

The agreement the Trump admin announced yesterday, and a subsequent attempt to call a truce, collapsed almost immediately. @SaraKho https://bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-10-26/armenia-azerbaijan-say-u-s-brokered-truce-is-being-ignored?sref=yYYRek8e…" View the tweet here.
