So just how liberal and conservative are Minnesota's members of Congress?
The National Journal recently released its vote rankings for 2010. Nothing too surprising in this year's results. The most liberal member of the state's House delegation is 5th District Rep. Keith Ellison with a ranking of 14. The most conservative member of the state's House delegation is 6th District Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is ranked 19.
A couple of interesting notes : 1st District DFL Rep. Tim Walz continues to get a centrist score with a ranking of 158. He has slightly moved to the left compared to the 2009 rankings where he was ranked 166. Meanwhile, 2nd District Rep. John Kline has a far less conservative ranking this year compared to last year. In 2010 he is ranked 108 compared to in 2009 when he got a ranking of 32.
In the Senate, Democrat Al Franken had a liberal ranking of 15 while fellow Democrat Amy Klobuchar was ranked 38.
