TX – Poe, Ted

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.
