Snowe, Collins ranked among least conservative Republican senators

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — A conservative group in Washington says Maine’s two U.S. senators are among the least conservative Republicans in the Senate.

Heritage Action of America released its legislative scorecard Thursday ranking senators and U.S. representatives based on how they stood on certain issues.

Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins are considered to be moderates, so it was no surprise the list ranked them the third- and second-least conservative Republicans in the Senate. The group listed Sen. Lisa Murkowsi of Alaska as the least-conservative member of the GOP in the Senate.

Sens. Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Mike Lee of Utah were rated as the most conservative senators.
