SENATOR CAPITO SCORES A LIFETIME RATING OF ONLY 68% CONSERVATIVE AND DRAWS RUSH LIMBAUGH'S WRATH
According to the American Conservative Union, Sen. Capito’s lifetime voting record is the third most liberal of any Republican in the United States Senate.
While in the Senate, Sen. Capito has failed to support the Republican Party platform, and undermined President Donald Trump’s key campaign promise: to repeal and replace Obamacare. During the Senate fight over Obamacare, Rush Limbaugh ripped into Sen. Capito for stalling efforts in the GOP-controlled Senate to repeal Obamacare. And in 2017, Sen. Capito was one of just three Republicans who opposed a bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – a bill that included defunding Planned Parenthood.
“Now we find out the Republican caucus in the Senate is infected with essentially leftist members,” Limbaugh said. “Collins, Murkowski, Capito – these three female leftists in the Republican caucus are running the Senate, not Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell is not running the Senate. These three women are running the Senate. The conservative Republicans in the Senate are not running the Senate. Three liberal women who call themselves Republicans are running the Senate.”
