NJ – Lance, Leonard

Cook PVI 2017 Average Legislative Score Madison Performance Index (MPI) Take Action

Lance is in his 5th term representing the 7th district of New Jersey, just southeast of New York. He sits on Energy and Commerce and holds a legislative score of 51.3%. Like many northeastern RINOs, he is occasionally reliable on fiscal issues, and hopelessly liberal on social ones. Lance has moved further left recently, as his seat is the most vulnerable of any New Jersey Republican. Is it better to keep a 51.3% RINO or elect a 0% liberal Democrat? That’s the decision facing conservatives in the 7th.
