AL – Aderholt, Robert

Cook PVI State District Average Score MPI Score
R+30 57 -33

Robert Aderholt is in his 11th term in the House, first elected in 1996.  A veteran member of the Appropriations committee, Aderholt  represents one of the top 5 conservative districts in the country, yet votes with Heritage Action only 55% of the time (below the House GOP average of 68%),  Aderholt is a big-porking appropriator with an affinity for industry unions, tariffs, and government subsidies for farms and housing.  He voted with Nancy Pelosi for the irresponsible 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act.

Aderholt supported cash for clunkers and unconstitutional regulations on credit cards, yet he is a member of the Tea Party Caucus, in addition to the RSC. He is clearly not comfortable in his skin.  He ran unopposed in 2016.  Aderholt also serves on the Committee on Security and Cooperation in Europe.
