The 2015 Scorecard has been released. Check back soon for a summary of the results from CRA President Tom Hudson.
In 2014, No Member of the State Senate Scored 100%. Mike Morrell and Joel Anderson were both over 90%.
Republican Anthony Cannella scored 35%, eclipsing his previous record low of 41%. (Abel Maldonado with 29% several years back is the all-time record holder for the lowest scoring Republican) In Cannella’s defense, his district is 14 points to the good for the democrats.
Showing the partisan divide, Lou Correa (whose 42% score in 2013 was higher than Cannella’s 41%)… seems to have returned to his roots, leading the Democrat Caucus with a 17% score.
In the Assembly in 2014, it was much better. Five members scored 99% or 100%. Still more were in the high 90’s, showing the Assembly Republican Caucus commitment to defending the taxpayers.
Scandal-Riddled former democrat Assembly-member Steve Fox scored 61% while Republican Katcho Achadjian whose coastal district is democrat-leaning scored a GOP-Low 63%. Only two other democrats scored over 11% – Rudy Salas whose central valley district is a constant target and Sharon Quirk-Silva who got her “Butt Kicked” by Young Kim. (remember the famous you tube video?)

Only Three Lawmakers Receive Perfect 100% Scores; Sixty-Five Score Zero
One State Senator and two Assembly Members received perfect scores in the latest Legislative Scorecard released by the California Republican Assembly.
“We’d like to congratulate Senator Joel Anderson; Assemblymember Tim Donnelly and Assemblymember Beth Gaines for achieving perfect scores this year,” commented CRA President John Briscoe.
“Overall nineteen legislators received ‘A’ grades by scoring above 90%,” Briscoe continued. “They continue to demonstrate their commitment to conservative principles.”
CRA’s scorecard is derived from votes cast on diverse bills ranging from giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants to expanding a government program that subsidizes the purchase of new clean vehicles for low-income drivers.
While the total number of 100% scores decreased from 2012, the total number of zeros increased dramatically, from thirteen in 2012 to sixty-five this year.
“Our Democrat friends continue to demonstrate how out of touch they are as they push their radical liberal agenda,” added Briscoe.
Senator Lou Correa was joined this year by Assemblyman Rudy Salas, Jr. as the highest scoring Democrats. Each received scores of 42%.
Assemblyman Anthony Cannella found his way to the bottom of the Republican rankings scoring only 41%.
Democrats in the Assembly and Senate were amazingly consistent this year in their votes. The Average score for the Assembly was 3% for Democrats and 90% for Republicans, while in the Senate it was 3% for Democrats and 79% for Republicans.
