Jones is in his 12th term, representing the 3rd district of North Carolina. He sits on Armed Services, and holds a lackluster 76.6% legislative score, down from his previous 79%. Jones has been described as a maverick with libertarian tendencies. He certainly doesn’t vote like a fiscally responsible libertarian – he voted with the Democrats to preserve Obamacare, has supported earmarks and opposed base closures. Like so many senior Republicans, he talks right and votes left time and again. The 3rd has long deserved better.
