Center of Congress

On a follow up on the previous post, the National Journal rated these senators and representatives as being at the center of Congress.

The most liberal Republican in the Senate is Lincoln Chafee by far. His liberal score of 59.2 is significantly higher than his conservative score of 40.8. Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, both Republicans of Maine have slightly higher liberal scores than conservative scores and Gordon Smith (R-OR) is about 50-50.

Ben Nelson (D-NE) is by far the most conservative Democrat in the Senate, with a slightly higher conservative than liberal rating. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) follows with a split similar to Chafee's.

Thanks for stopping by. Should I put you under NJ politics or U.S politics?
