TSCPA member U.S. Rep. Michael Conaway (R- Midland) has been recognized, along with Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Dallas), as the most conservative Texan in Congress according to the National Journal. “That places them in a five-way tie for fifth place in the whole 112th Congress,” according to the Houston Chronicle’s Texans on the Potomac blog.
What about the Senate? Sen. John Cornyn ranks as the second-most conservative senator. But remember, this is before Texas’ new Senator Ted Cruz was a member of Congress.
