How pro-liberty are the current New Hampshire Senators?

July 18, 2012

Senators ranked in order of how pro-liberty they are:

1. James Forsythe (R District 4 Strafford) (Endorsed Ron Paul) A+
2. Raymond White (R District 9 Bedford) (Endorsed Ron Paul) A
3. Fenton Groen (R District 6 Rochester) A-
3. Andy Sanborn (R District 7 Henniker) (Endorsed Ron Paul) A-
5. Tom DeBlois (R District 18 Manchester) B+
5. Chuck Morse (R District 22 Salem) B+
7. Jim Rausch (R District 19 Derry) B-
7. Russell Prescott (R District 23 Kingston) B-
7. Peter Bragdon  (R District 11 Milford) B-
7. Jim Luther (R District 12 Hollis) B-
7. Gary Lambert (R District 13 Nashua) B-
7. Sharon Carson (R District 14 Londonderry) B-
7. David Boutin (R District 16 Hooksett) B-
7. John Barnes (R District 17 Raymond) B-
7. John Gallus (R District 1 Berlin) B-
7. Jeanie Forrester (R District 2 Meredith) B-
7. Jeb Bradley (R District 3 Wolfeboro) B-
18. Nancy Stiles (R District 24 Hampton) C
19. Bob Odell (R District 8 Lempster) C-
20. Lou D’Allesandro (D District 20 Manchester) D-
20. Sylvia Larsen (D District 15 Concord) D-
20. Matthew Houde (D District 5 Plainfield) D-
20. Amanda Merrill (D District 21 Durham) D-
20. Molly Kelly (D District 10 Keene) D-

I looked at 3 factors to come up with a final rating.
The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance 2011-2012 session average rating = 75% of the final rating. The NHLA covered a lot of bills in it’s ratings.
The Americans For Prosperity Foundation New Hampshire Senate Score Card for the 2011-2012 legislative session = 25% of the final rating. The AFP covered only a few bills in it’s rating.
If a New Hampshire Senator endorsed Ron Paul, he received a slight bonus in the final score. There is no need to explain why these Senators received a slight bonus.

Here is the NHLA data followed by the AFP data.

New Hampshire Liberty Alliance 2012 Senate Liberty Rating – this is the 1st time the NHLA 2012 Senate Liberty Rating has been shared online.  There is still a chance the rating may change before the NHLA officially publishes it online.  If the official information is different when published on the NHLA website, I’ll update this post to reflex the changes.
