Hill says he and Smith share similar beliefs...except he isn't reluctant to take on a larger leadership role...something Smith hasn't done. Smith does get points for listening to his constituents.
I hope Smith finds time for at least 3 or 4 debates...I don't expect it though. I think Hill is a viable candidate and deserves a listen...especially when incumbents get too comfortable in their position...you never know.
Correction 9/10/2010...an email this morning from an anonymous commenter corrected me on Adrian Smith's voting record in Congress and I must apologize for my gross error and set the record straight. I misread my source.
Again...my sincere apologies to Congressman Smith...and no...I do not "just make up stuff" in my postings. I strive to be 100% accurate.
Here are the facts...
- Adrian Smith has only missed 31 of 3,385 (<1%) roll call votes since Jan 4, 2007. This is the 30th best voting record in Congress.
- Adrian Smith has sponsored 11 bills since Jan 4, 2007 of which 10 haven't made it out of committee and none were successfully enacted. Smith has co-sponsored 261 bills during the same time period.
