Northeast Georgia’s Congressman is #16 Nationally


WASHINGTON, Feb 6 – In its annual rating of Congress released today, National Journal identified Congressman Doug Collins (GA-09) as the most conservative member of Georgia’s Congressional Delegation and the sixteenth most conservative Member of the House of Representatives overall.


On studying the rankings, Congressman Collins said, “I tell people all the time that Northeast Georgia is where you’ll find the ‘complete conservative’—those highly informed citizens who carefully consider both social and economic factors when they make their decisions. As the elected representative of Northeast Georgians, this ranking came as no surprise to me.”  Collins continued, “My district wants to see conservatism that works.  They want to see their values expressed in an effective way.  That’s what I’ve set out to do for them, and I’m glad one of the most fair and respected publications in Washington recognized that.”


National Journalhas been assessing and ranking Members of Congress on the ideological scale since 1981.  The nonpartisan ranking system took into consideration the 641 House votes taken in the first session of the 113th Congress.  For a full explanation of National Journal’s methodology, click here.
