Senate Statistics

Lincoln Chafee is a Rhode Island senator running for re-election November 2006. His campaign points out that he's the most liberal Republican in the senate. I tried finding the raw roll call vote data to back that up. After an hour of searching, I bumped into some statistics.

They show that he really is the most liberal Republican in the senate. But he's not as liberal as the Democrat from Georgia is Conservative. Actually, Zell Miller is no longer a senator. He didn't seek re-election in 2004.
