Griffith is in his 4th term representing the 9th district of Virginia. He sits on Energy and Commerce and holds a weak 77.6% legislative score. That rating is something of a disappointment, given the very conservative 9th (as safe a GOP district as can be drawn with an R+19 rating). Griffith’s more recent votes, however, have been encouraging, breaking from leadership to oppose the bloated 2018 budget bill. Since Trump’s election, Griffith has begun to act more like the staunch conservative his district deserves; he deserves watching to see if this is an enduring trend or mere opportunism.
