New rankings of lawmakers votes show that that Sen. John Cornyn ranks as more conservative among senators than Rep. Steve Stockman ranks in the House, despite the latters contention that Cornyn is too liberal:
How they rank: National Journal, a public-policy magazine, ranked all members of Congress on a conservative/liberal scale based on votes on key legislation in 2013. Cornyn ranked the 14th-most conservative of the 100 senators. Stockman ranked 138th among the 435 House members. He was behind all but two of the 24 Texas Republicans and in the middle of all House Republicans.
How it works: The particular issues that come up for a vote in any given year can contribute to fluctuations. Stockman ranked especially conservative on fiscal issues, but less so on social and foreign policy issues, which dragged down his composite score. Social policy was Cornyns most conservative category.

Do you really believe that?
I've worked hard on the ground to get Cornyn fired, and it will be good to see him gone.
They also claim that Paul Broun is less conservative than Jack Kingston. Anyone who believes that will believe anything.
John Cornyn, the Specter/Crist/Chafee Republican who deliberately tanked the 2010 Senate election, so the republicans wouldn't win?
Even if by some stretch of science fiction that were true, it would still be worth it to get rid of Cornyn, since he is a fifth columnist working for the Democrats.
99 Senators are less dangerous to our country than he is.
Cornyn worked against Tea Party people at every turn behind the scenes, as chairman of the GOP Senatorial Committee. He loathes us. Bob
Why? posting factual information about the 2nd most conservative Senator in Congress is now deserving of a zot?
Give me a break!
Do you want to break down those numbers? I have looked at those votes before, and I don’t think 100% means conservative. They include all kinds of terrible votes.
I wonder how “conservative on foreign policy issues” is defined. Even people on this site seem to differ.
Easy enough: voting for Stovall, anyway.
Corn Row must Go!
You’ll be ozone dust soon enough, then you can devote your full attention to licking Karl Rove’s whiteboard.
How is it factual to print meaningless numbers the left wing media. Those numbers have no meaning. You are hiding his actual votes or what he stands for.
Brendan, Brendan Steinhauser? Nice to see you posting on FR!
You think Cornyn is good?
