A Primer for Primary Challengers
THE DESIGNERS of IndianaScorecard, featured in the upcoming spring journal, say they provide everything you need to mount a primary challenge except the shoe leather. Visitors to the site can look up a representative or senator by last name or district by using the search function or more simply scrolling the columns (which can be set in descending or ascending order). Each legislator’s entry displays scorecard rank, percentage score, committee assignments, district map, summaries of, and the legislator’s vote on, criteria bills with links to the full text of the legislation. Finally, there is the legislator’s campaign finance information including lists of top donors and top payees. Try it out at IndianaScorecard.org. Don’t forget to update your membership to get an advance copy of the spring journal.
