Kelly is in his 2nd term representing the 1st district, taking in much of the north and northeast of the state. He sits on Agriculture, Armed Services, and Small Business; Kelly is a member of the Republican Study Committee. He holds a decent 86% legislative score, remarkable chiefly because in such a conservative state, this “B” level grade is by far the best of any Republican in either the House or Senate. And even though Kelly has exercised greater fiscal probity than his colleagues, he’s still voted time and again for bloated budgets, pork, and waste – just somewhat less often than his colleagues.
