Washington. A conservative group is awarding all of Utah's Republican members of Congress — except Sen. Mitt Romney — its highest award for voting in line with its goals last year.

The American Conservative Union Foundation, which runs the Conservative Political Action Conference that disinvited Romney to attend, says Sen. Mike Lee and Reps. Rob Bishop, John Curtis and Chris Stewart all had scores of 80% or higher on its metric adhering to conservative principles but Romney didn't make the cut at 77%.

"Sen. Mitt Romney [is the] only member of [Utah's] Republican delegation not earning an award for a conservative voting record," the group said in a news release Wednesday.
