You know elections are approaching when various groups begin releasing scorecards on how incumbents voted. One of the latest is by the MainStream Coalition (mainstreamcoalition.org), a group that believes “moderate voices need to be heard in today’s political climate.” It rated state lawmakers based on votes this legislative session and past years in six broad categories: fiscal sanity, public education, judicial independence, church and state, health care, and gun safety.
