Who's the most conservative?
According to The National Journal's ratings out today, it's....
House Minority Leader John Boehner of West Chester.
The local Republican tied with seven other U.S. House members for the HIGHEST score among conservative members. That means that Boehner and the seven other lawmakers are MORE CONSERVATIVE than 93.3 percent of their House colleagues.
So what about the other Greater Cincinnati lawmakers?
Rep. Steve Chabot was the 3rd most conservative Ohio lawmaker with a score making him more conservative than 82.5 percent of his colleagues.
Rep. Jean Schmidt ranked as the 4th most conservative Ohio lawmaker, essentially placing her as more conservative than 81.7 percent of her fellow lawmakers.
Rep. Mike Turner ranked as the 6th most conservative Ohio lawmaker and was more conservative than 64.2 percent of House lawmakers.
Rep. Geoff Davis was the 3rd most conservative Kentucky lawmaker, although he was more conservative than 82.2 percent of House lawmakers.
That score places Davis squarely between Chabot and Schmidt in terms of who's more conservative.
