Ever wonder what the National Rifle Association thinks of Senator Tom Harkin — or how Congressman Tom Latham stacks up with the National Right to Life Committee? All seven of Iowa’s elected leaders in Washington D-C are featured on a new “report card” issued by the non-partisan Project Vote Smart.Project Vote Smart spokesman Derek Helms says Iowa’s five members of Congress and two Senators have been rated by more than 100 groups, spanning the political spectrum from gun control to the environment to abortion.Even though it’s not an election year, Helms says Iowans need to keep up with the people they’ve sent to Washington.The results are available over the tollfree phone number 888-VOTE-SMART or on the Internet at “www.vote-smart.org”.
