Progressive Punch rates Cong. Chet Edwards 67.57% progressive. This should be food for thought to the handful of folks continually e-mailing me about how he's a "Democrat In Name Only," who votes with the Republicans "80% of the time." Incidentally, Cong. Joe Barton, who one e-mailer claimed was "virtually identical" to Chet, rates 5.17%. At the Republic Party State Convention, Cong. Pete Sessions claimed Chet voted with Nancy Pelosi "75% of the time." Except her score is 93.62%. So what does all this mean? It means, as I have said all along, that Chet is a moderate, and the choice for progressives in November is clear; vote for someone who agrees with you 67.57% of the time, or sit on your hands and help elect someone who will oppose you 100% of the time. Pick one.
