The conservative group CPAC just released their latest rankings of all 50 states, from most conservatives to the least.
Surprisingly, Texas came in at #26.
"In 2015-2017, Texas was kind of near the top of the list, a top ten state" said Fred McGrath, director with CPAC, "But recently, 2019 and now especially this year, Texas has fallen to the middle down to #26.
When you think of a red state, you think of Texas. But according to the CPAC study, when all was said and done, Texas lawmakers ended up voting conservative just 58% overall. So, maybe some Texas Republicans are not as conservative as we think.
"On a lot of the key issues, like life and the 2nd amendment, the majority of the lawmakers there are very solid" McGrath told KTRH, "But when we dive down into some of these other areas, like welfare and medicaid, that's where things kind of start to fall apart."
Hopefully, we'll see the Texas Republicans vote more conservative, when the next legislative session starts next month.
Alabama was the #1 conservative state, followed by Tennessee. Massachusetts was at the bottom at #50.
