This comes as no surprise to anyone that pays attention to State politics. The only other politician to receive a negative score denoting being to the left is the former Republican, Kent Williams who was kicked out of the Republican Party.
Beth Harwell is hardly one of the farthest right Republican, like this rating system shows. She’s declared herself a globalist. Her rating may be boosted by the fact that she abstains frequently from voting, which the Speaker can do.
This rating system isn’t entirely accurate, because the political spectrum is not linear, but it’s good enough to accurately reflect what we all know about Senator Doug Overbey.
