Club for Growth Releases 2015 Congressional Scorecard

Sen. Mike Lee and three deeply conservative House members came out on top in the Club for Growth’s 2015 scorecard of members of Congress.

The annual report grades members on votes on issues related to limited government. The 2015 report is based on 29 House votes and 25 Senate votes from last year, according to a release.

Lee, a Republican from Utah, was the only senator to earn a perfect score. Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska came in a close second with a 98 followed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) with a 97 and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) with a 95.

Three Republican House members — John Ratcliffe of Texas, Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee — earned a 100. Huelskamp and DesJarlais are members of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) earned the highest score among GOP leaders with a grade of 73. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was scored at 62.

Sen. Susan Collins of Maine had the lowest score among Republicans with a 25.
