Jenkins is in his 2nd term representing the 3rd district in the south of West Virginia. He recently lost in the Republican primary for Senate in the race against Democratic incumbent Joe Manchin.  Jenkins sits on Appropriations and holds an abysmal 54% legislative score.  While Jenkins unseated a long-time liberal incumbent in 2014, he votes on fiscal issues in the same way that the liberal would have voted had he stayed. Jenkins’ social conservatism may suit his district, his RINO-big spending decidedly does not. Time for him to either add “fiscal conservative” to his resume or time for him to go.
