Newsome’s Cherry Picking

Rep. Sandy Newsome doesn’t like my endorsement of Nina Webber. In reply, she cherry-picked and posted a few of her votes that agreed with well known conservative Rep. Dan Laursen. As it turns out that is a really bad idea. One of the things you can do with Evidence-Based Wyoming is to compare legislators to other legislators. So that’s what I did. I compared all legislators to Rep...

HD-1: If votes supporting Republicans in the legislature are cows, Tyler Lindholm is all hat no cattle.

In HD-1 vote for the candidate that will stand with the Republican Party, Chip Neiman. The Bad Choice Evidence-based Wyoming ranks Tyler Lindholm as a liberal Republican. In 2020, in at least 80 votes, he voted against his party’s majority. Nine of those times, it caused the Republicans majority to lose those votes. On top of that, Rep. Lindholm led the revolt against Rep. Gray’s...

Convention, Conversation, and Correction

On Friday, June 26th, I attended the Wyoming Republican Convention. This year is the first year that I had a booth for my legislative ranking system. It’s been an exciting experience so far. I conversed with thirty or more Republicans of all stripes.   One of the more interesting conversations was with Rep. Jared Olsen (R-Cheyenne) and his wife, Dani Olsen, the Chair of the...

The new rankings for the 2020 budget session can be found here This is why I try to show all my work...

New legislative Statistic – Critical Defections

The main reason for this website is to give voters access to data about their legislators and how they vote. I’m continually trying to find new ways to relate information about legislators voting tendencies and patterns. One area that always bugs me is the small margins of many votes in the House of Representatives. It amazes me that five or fewer votes decide even five percent of votes...

Legislative Transparency – Why it Matters

There is a new tool available on Evidence-Based Wyoming, the Legislative Transparency Tool. The new legislative transparency tool at the bottom of the page in the Legislative Analysis Tool. The tool determines legislative transparency by calculating the percentage of votes that are roll call votes. Roll call votes let you know how your legislator voted. A voice vote isn’t recorded anywhere...
