Brady is in his 11th term, representing the 8th district that is just north of Houston. The Chairman of Ways and Means, Brady is one of the most powerful Republicans in Congress, and unfortunately, embarrassingly liberal. His sad 59.3% legislative rating reflects Brady’s consistent compromises with Democrats and an eagerness to embrace pork in virtually any form. Conservatives have come close to unseating him and perhaps 2018 will be the year. It can’t come soon enough. This district can do much better than Kevin Brady.
