There’s another player out there rating the conservatism of DC politicians — Conservative Review. The folks at that site give both North Carolina senators failing grades, and pass only FIVE of North Carolina’s 13 House members.
Congressman Mark Meadows (R-11) earns a grade of 96 percent (A), while Walter Jones (R-3) comes in second with 70 percent (C). Virginia Foxx (66 percent), George Holding (65 percent) and Patrick McHenry (63 percent) all earned grades of D. Hudson, Ellmers, Walker, Rouzer and Pittenger ALL got grades of F. (Pittenger earned the “honor” of being the most liberal Republican in the delegation. Of course, the three remaining Democrats failed.)
Things didn’t look much better in the Senate. Both of our guys there earned grades of F. Burr comes in at 49 percent while Tillis gets a nice round 40.
Let’s compare all of this info with our neighbors down south in The Palmetto State. Six of their seven House members are Republicans, and they tallied up 2 As, 2 Bs, a C, and a D. (Democrat James Clyburn got the only F.)
In the Senate, Tim Scott earns an 85 (B) while Lindsey Graham-nesty gets a 47. (Wow. Thom is to the left of Lindsey. #SMH).
South Carolina manages to get a more respectable pool of Republican officeholders. What is our problem up here?
Remember this info, as well as the Heritage Action info, the next time one of these turkeys sends you mail, runs and ad, or gives a speech crowing about how “conservative” they are.
