PORTSMOUTH, N.H., April 11, 2014– According to her staff, United States Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) will consider running for president in 2016. An aide informed RealClearPolitics that if Blackburn “sees an opportunity” she would seize it. Blackburn represents Tennessee’s 7th federal congressional district.

“If there’s a door to kick down, she’s willing to kick it down,” the aide, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said. “These are the kinds of events you go to — test the waters, and see what the reaction is.”

Blackburn is scheduled to be one of the speakers at a New Hampshire Republican rally this coming weekend. She will join United States Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), United States Senator Ted Cruz (R- Texas) and former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.)

The RealClearPolitics article goes on to cite Blackburn as a “staunch fiscal conservative”. However, a quick Google search dispels  all myths that, as of late, the Congresswoman is a staunch fiscal conservative.

According to her FreedomWorks “conservative on fiscal issues” score, Blackburn has not scored above 80% in three years. Her current score is a 71%, which is two points lower than last year.

At 77%, Club for Growth, the number one fiscally conservative PAC in the nation, gave Blackburn a not so conservative rating in 2013. She sits in 83rd place with regards to upholding the PAC’s credentials of supporting “constitutionally limited government” and “sound economic policy”.

The Heritage Foundation, Washington’s conservative think-tank juggernaut, rates Blackburn on par with other conservative organizations. The think-tank has currently issued her a weak 77%.

Even the National Journal, a moderately conservative publication, rated Blackburn as being “more liberal” than 1/5 of Congress (2013) when it came to sound fiscal policy. This score should be considered generous when considering the source.

To Blackburn’s credit, the Congresswoman once boasted incredibly strong scores during her first years in Congress. In fact, she was rated as having a 100% fiscally conservative score by multiple groups during her first term. However, that was years ago, and voting records don’t lie. As Blackburn’s time in Congress has progressed, her votes have become more and more progressive as well.
