    For most Republican districts, take a look at this. The reddest district from 2012 isn't in either Utah or Oklahoma, but actually in west Texas (TX-13). If you're interested in states, try this, I suppose; Utah did become the reddest state again, thanks to Romney's sorta-favorite-son status.

    Matheson does have the worst voting record of any House Dem this cycle (52.44% Progressive Punch for the 2013-14 cycle). Given that he also has the worst district of any House Dem, that's to be expected.

      that he votes to be re-elected, rather than voting for any constituents he may have currently.  

      i kinda thought he'd take on an open senate seat.

      he's not my rep anymore, my neighborhood was included in chris stewart's "combover".

      thanks bunches for the links, will share with my utah women's group.  i am wondering why we need matheson at all.  how much worse could it be with a republican there?  he doesn't vote for nancy pelosi for leadership.  it seems like a painful charade.  

      my 46yo eyes appreciate the enlarging tip.  and it's late and dusky here.

      It actually voted for Romney slightly less than it voted for Bush (2004, I think). And that's with favorite son status.
