AZ Conservative Coalition: Final rating updates

On June 18, we reported the Arizona Conservative Coalition (ACC) would release a final, updated scoring for the just completed legislative session. The most recent ratings reflecting legislative actions as of 6/28/13 are now available. Click here for the updated report and individual scores. There are six categories, ranging from Reagan Republican down to RINO.

Howard Levine’s informative narrative can be read here. The Governor’s score will be published separately next week due to the fact that her final actions on the last couple of bills occurred this week, and require review before releasing her score.

The folks at ACC provide individual scores for Arizona’s Republican Representatives and Senators. There is quite a variation. This week the Senate ratings range from a high of 92.0 down to a disgraceful 34.2. In the House of Representatives the top scorer received a 96.1 with the bottom of the list rating a feeble 36.0.

The FAQs section responds to some of the questions the folks at ACC have been getting regarding the grades assigned.

Bills used in the evaluation along with the summary of criteria used to weight bills can be seen here. There is also an excellent, concise analysis of each bill considered.

We at Seeing Red AZ send our appreciation to the crew at Arizona Conservative Coalition for their timely and in-depth weekly reports during the legislative session and this final follow-up. It’s obvious a great amount of effort goes into making these reports available.  We look forward to posting these informative reports for our readers next session.

    I join Seeing Red in congratulating Howard Levine and all involved in the Arizona Conservative Coalition’s effort to keep voters informed and updated on the actions of Republican state legislators. It’s clear the evaluations take an immense amount of time. Your efforts are not in vain. Many statewide PCs pay close attention. I know this as fact from conversations with others.. Thanks!!!

    “ACLU Hires Ex-McCain Strategist Steve Schmidt To Move GOP On Gay Marriage”

    “Tom Kludt, June 26, 2013”

    “The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced Wednesday that it’s hiring Steve Schmidt, a former top strategist on Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) 2008 presidential campaign, to help shift the Republican Party’s attitude on marriage equality.”

    “In a statement announcing the hire, the ACLU said that Schmidt’s role will be “to help spearhead the campaign to strike down state-based laws prohibiting same-sex marriage.”

    Notice that this attack is to be at the state level. So, after Brewercare, the next sell out to look for is with homosexual “marriage”. The ACLU has committed $10 million for this between now and 2016. Watch the $$$ flow and watch for Republican legislators “evolving” on homosexual “marriage”!

      I started to respond with the single word, “unbelievable,” but by this time I know better. Steve Schmidt cut his liberal teeth in John McCain’s camp. It’s no surprise he’d be in the sack with the ACLU.

    I looked at the list of bills, and HB2305 was not listed. That’s the one that criminalized aggregating early ballots and requires all candidates to get the same number of petition signatures, and drop people from early voting if they’re not early voting. It’s the only bill that’s got Dems mad enough to do a referendum. Lo and behold, I did not see it in the list of bills used to evaluate the legislators. Go back to the drawing board.
