Latta has represented the 5th district since 2007. He serves on Energy and Commerce and is a member of the Republican Study Committee. Latta holds a 67.3% legislative score, reflecting a generally lackluster commitment to conservative principles. He’s far better than a few of his worst compatriots, but a long way from the example set by Jim Jordan. Latta rarely votes against debt-ceiling increases or against pork-laden budgets; he is an average Republican in a district that deserves better.
