Candidate Evaluation Resources

After the Primary election, we are pretty much stuck with R voters voting R and D voters voting D, so candidate evaluation is primarily a matter of choosing among so-called "Republicans"--i.e., those who have chosen to put an "R" after their name.  That does NOT mean they hold to Republican Principles.  We, as citizen voters, need to learn how to tell who they really are.
