This is an update on keeping score on all of the elected in the U.S. Senate that have a (R) after their name. Conservatives have not made the same gains that they have made in the U.S.House. While the results of the 2014 midterm election put Republicans in the majority in the senate, it also shows how unsuccessful conservatives were to primary any GOP incumbents.

In the update on the GOP in the U.S. House we divided Republicans into two camps: Republican AND conservative are the minority 114 and Republican BUT NOT conservative are the majority 132. We only provided data in tables for 44 House members. We did not have a third camp of Democrats with a (R) after their name because there are not that many of them. Their number would have to equal 82 to be like what we have in the U.S. Senate.

The House update was based entirely on the Heritage Action Scorecard scores. The U.S. Senate update for the August recess also includes NumbersUSA Grades and the National Right to Life scores. The reason is that even low information voters know about the barbaric violence committed in abortion clinics and by foreigners who are here illegally. The liar media may try to downplay and not report, but the news comes out any way.

Sometimes the voters can only find one good thing about voting for the Republican instead of the Democrat, and that one thing is that the Republican is 100% pro-life and with the National Right to Life Committee every time. If the Republican is not 100% pro-life and supports the status quo on immigration, then the choice for the voter is vote for the Democrat with a (R) or with a (D) after their name. The tables indicate that whatever conservatives in Arizona have been doing is not working. The tables also indicate that conservatives in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Nebraska, and Oklahoma can pat themselves on the back for electing Republican AND conservative senators.
