Cheney is a freshman representing Wyoming’s at-large district. She sits on Rules, Natural Resources, and Armed Services, and holds a 75.5% legislative score.  Cheney is perhaps a better conservative than her voting record suggests, as her votes with the liberals tend to be on issues particularly impactful to a small Western state.  Cheney backed the pork-laden farm bill, supports the wasteful Essential Air Service, and the 2018 budget itself.  Her instincts appear to be right, but she often votes her state’s interests rather than the nation’s.   Compared to other At Large Members in neighboring states, Cheney is a virtual rockstar, bu she should be prompted to do better.
