Stewart is in his 3rd term representing the 2nd district. He sits on Intelligence, Appropriations, and is a member of the Republican Study Committee. He holds a 77% legislative score, an almost 9% improvement this Congress. Stewart votes responsibly 7 times in 10, which is laudable – but those other three votes are for things like a reckless budget, unfunded disaster relief, and lifting the debt ceiling. At R+16, the 2nd can handle a stronger voting record. It remains to be seen if Stewart can produce one.
