Thompson is in his 5th term representing the traditionally rural 5th district. He sits on Agriculture, Education, and Natural Resources.  Thompson’s 51% legislative score would make him the worst of the worst in many state Republican caucuses; in Pennsylvania, sadly, this habit of voting equally often with conservatives and big-spending liberals makes him average.  Thompson is a reliable socially conservative vote, but votes with Nancy Pelosi time and again on budgets and debt-ceiling increases and unfunded disaster relief. A decade is too long and too expensive; it’s time for Thompson to go.
