Posted on 08/08/2006 9:56:43 AM PDT by KyleM
10. Steve Chabot (98%) Liberals want Chabots seat. Hes in an evenly split district (Bush got 51% against Kerry), but that hasnt weakened his exceptionally strong voting record.
9. Joe Pitts (99%) A Vietnam veteran, Pitts has quietly attained a very conservative voting record in a state that continues to lurch leftward because of its increasing RINO congressional representation.
8. Sue Myrick (99%) Shes part of the celebrated Class of 1994 who continues to fight for limited government even after 12 years in Washington.
7. Todd Akin (100%) Akin was one of the 25 brave fiscal conservatives who successfully resisted the DeLay whip machine by voting against the Medicare drug bill in 2003.
6. Ed Royce (100%) He speaks softly, but carries a strong voting card. Hes a very smart guy and a nice one to boot.
5. John Shadegg (100%) Heres one reason why House Republicans are getting weaker and weaker on fiscal issues they didnt elect John Shadegg as their Majority Leader.
4. Jeb Hensarling (100%) He studied under fiscal legend, Phil Gramm. And while hes got big shoes to fill, hes surpassing all expectations as the RSCs budgetary pointman.
3. Mike Pence (100%) Mike Pence, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), is a rising star. Watch out for him.
2. Trent Franks (100%) A successful entrepreneur, Franks is the real deal when it comes to fiscal conservatism. He has publicly stated that he never wants to be on the Appropriations Committee.
1. Jeff Flake (100%) Very few members of Congress, if any, work harder than Jeff Flake to protect the American taxpayer. Most admirably, he has never secured pork projects for his district.
Good list. Is anyone willing to list the state and district they represent? Maybe good Freepers will consider sending these folks some campaign $.
Thats a funny title... there are only about 19... so they could not really do a top 20
10. Steve Chabot OHio 2
9. Joe Pitts PENN
8. Sue Myrick NC9
7. Todd Akin Missouri 2
6. Ed Royce California
5. John Shadegg Arizona
4. Jeb Hensarling Texas 5(before redistricting)
3. Mike Pence (100%) Mike Pence, the chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC), is a rising star. Watch out for him. INDIANA 6th
2. Trent Franks Arizon
1. Jeff Flake (100%) Arizona
Sad but very true
I second that "." Kyle: Mike Pence is one of the few, brave, Reaganites left in Congress..
Pence08? You better hitch yourselves to another star. Pence buried himself when he let the cheaper labor lobbies put that immigration bill in his hand. Pence is finito. His primary challengers will hit him with commercial after commercial specifying various absurdities in the "Pence bill". Pence won't get out of New Hampshire. Maybe not even Iowa. It's going to be ugly, I would feel sorry for him, but I suspect he sold his soul for hints of presidential campaign financing.
Jeff Flake is way too open-borders for my taste. And pretty weak on some social conservative issues.
I notice that three of the top five on the list are Arizonans from the John McCain mold...
Does this mean he could Club for Growth endorsement if he decides to run?
The Tancredoites have their orders to destroy him by any means necessary.
your an idiot
yep! it will happen!
