Poe is in his 7th and final term representing the 2nd district of Texas, north and east of Houston. He sits on the Foreign Affairs and Judiciary Committees, and is a member of the Republican Study Committee. He holds a 74.6% legislative score. Poe’s district was savaged by Harvey, which explains his votes for disaster relief – what he can’t as easily explain is his vote for the disastrous debt ceiling compromise. While the 2nd is not an R+13 district, it is still a strong Republican district and deserves a more aggressive fiscal conservative than Ted Poe.
