Graves is a 9th term veteran, representing Missouri’s vast 6th district. He is a member of the Armed Services and Transportation committees. Graves holds a lamentable 69% rating from Heritage Action, all the more disappointing because his once marginal district has grown increasingly safe for Republicans since the last redistricting. In this Congress, Graves has voted for the pork-laded Omnibus bill, has refused to cut the wasteful Essential Air Service, and voted against conservative efforts to continue needed base closings.
