Top Ten Most Conservative Representatives

Tied for 1st – Reps. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas; Sam Johnson, R-Texas; Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; Doug Lamborn, R-Colo.; Trent Franks, R-Ariz.

Five representatives tied for most conservative in the 2010 vote rankings with a composite score of 95.0. Franks, Lamborn, and Neugebauer were ranked 1st most conservative in 2009. For Franks this is his 4th straight year tied as the most conservative House member.

6th – Rep. Jean Schmidt, R-Ohio; 7th – Rep. Pete Olson, R-Texas; 8th – Rep. John Boehner, R-Ohio; 9th – Rep. Bob Latta, R-Ohio; 10th – Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas.

Only one of the 10 most conservative members of the House was a woman: Schmidt. The next most conservative woman in the House for 2010 is Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., who tied for 19th. Also missing from the Top Ten was Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Calif., who was passed over for House Appropriations Committee chairman amid concerns about his conservative credentials. Lewis was the 22nd most conservative House member in 2010.
