Minnesota's most liberal Congressional representative per their district? Without a doubt Tim Walz in the 1st Cong. District.

Without a doubt the liberal representative in relation to his or her district is Rep. Tim Walz in the 1st Congressional District which runs along the southern border of Minnesota. I've noticed that on our last two voter's guides, he's in lock step with Ellison and McCollum in terms of votes taken on issues.

He voted for federal health care takeover.
He voted for government subsidy of abortion.
He voted for cap and trade.
He voted to fund abortion promoting organizations like Planned Parenthood.
He voted for repealing "Don't ask, don't tell".
He voted for the massively expensive "stimulus' bill.
He voted to expand hate crimes to give special status to sexual orientation.
He voted to federal fund the destruction of human embryos.
He voted to give special employment protections to homosexuals.
He voted against making the tax cuts permanent.

You get the picture. Whether it's abortion, taxes, family, cap and trade, government spending, Walz votes on the left side of the spectrum. The American Conservative Union gives him a lifetime score of 8% through 2009.

Walz got elected in 2006, a strong anti-incumbent year. With voters again aroused, they're no doubt paying closer attention to his liberal voting record which is far, far out of touch with his district. The more scrutiny his record receives the more problems he'll have.
