Gibson named most liberal Republican


February 27, 2013

WASHINGTON D.C. — The National Journal has named Congressman Chris Gibson as the most liberal Republican in the House of Representatives.

Each year the magazine ranks the political leanings of all Congressman, and it says this year Gibson is one of those rare politicians in the nation’s capital—a moderate.

Here’s an excerpt: “Gibson placed the furthest left of all House Republicans in National Journal’s 2012 ideological vote ratings. Whether that means he is the most liberal, the most moderate, or perhaps just the least conservative member of the GOP conference is in the eye of the beholder. The way Gibson sees it, he landed near the middle of both ratings in his first term because he balances a pro-growth and an anti-debt agenda, all while representing a district that Obama carried twice.”
