Ready with those tomatoes or bouquets? Then take aim.
National Journal has released its annual vote rating of all 535 lawmakers on Capitol Hill, based on votes cast in 2011.
No one from the Kansas City region makes the pantheon of the top 10 most conservative or liberal members in the House and Senate, although Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay of St. Louis is tied with 18 others in his party for the top liberal in the chamber. The next closest is Dem. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, who checks in at number 30.
On the conservative end, Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins of Kansas clocks in with the House's 36th most conservative voting record. She's tied. So is GOPer Kevin Yoder, who follows at number 47. Republican Mike Pompeo of Wichita is closest to the top, tied at 15th.
In the Senate, the most conservative local member out of the 100 in the upper chamber is Kansas Republican Pat Roberts, at 29th, followed closely by his in-state colleague, Jerry Moran, tied at number 30.
Missouri GOP Sen. Roy Blunt is further down as the 40th most conservative member, while his across-the-aisle seat mate, Democrat Claire McCaskill, is 11 paces back, as the 51st most conservative senator. Only three other Democrats score higher on conservative voting scale.
By the same token, McCaskill is squarely in the middle on the liberal side, ranked at number 50.
By National Journal's reckoning, she votes liberal 58 percent of the time and conservative 42 percent of the time. Blunt votes liberal 36 percent of the time and conservative 64 percent of the time.
