Write a paragraph describing the personal, professional, and educational background of the representative before he or she entered Congress. Focus on the non-political aspects of the member’s life. In what ways is the representative you are studying typical of other members of the U.S. House? In what ways is he or she atypical? (The word atypical means not typical.) Base your judgment on the online profile of the membership of Congress found at the following Internet site: R46705 (congress.gov). Keep in mind that this question focuses on the demographic, occupational, educational, religious, and career background of the member. It does NOT ask about issue positions, character, or motivations. It does not ask about political background or government offices held. In short, I am asking you to compare and contrast the demographic, educational, family, and professional, background of the member you are studying with the membership of the House as a whole. (10 pts.)

2. Write a paragraph describing the representative’s political background. Identify the elected and appointed positions in government the person you are studying held before being elected to Congress. Identify the year the representative first won election to the U.S. House. Is he or she a career politician? What is the basis of your judgment? A career politician is someone who wishes to earn his or her living in the political arena for an extended period of time. (10 pts.)

3. Write a paragraph describing the district the member represents. Where is it located in the state? Does it include any small towns? Is it part of a major city? If so, which city? Is it inner-city urban, suburban, small town, or rural? What issue or issues would you expect to be particularly important to the residents and interest groups found in the member’s district because of the nature of the district? Identify at least one issue and explain why it is particularly important in this congressional district, whereas it might not be as important in other districts. Please note that I am asking you to discuss an issue or issues that are particularly important to the residents and interests located in the district, which are not necessarily the pet issues of the member of Congress. Do Not assume that the issues important to the member of Congress are also important to the residents of the district. (10 pts.)

4. Write a paragraph discussing the representative’s committee assignments. On which standing congressional committees does the member serve? [Look up the term “standing committee.”] What sorts of policy issues does each of the standing committees address? Is the representative a member of any subcommittees? Does he/she play a leadership role by serving as a chair or ranking member of any committees or subcommittees? [Look up “ranking member.”] Please note: Do NOT give mye information about the member’s participation in congressional caucuses. If the member is not assigned to any committees, explain why. You may need to do some research. (10 pts.)

5. How much money did the representative raise for the 2020 election? Who was the member’s main opponent? How much money did the opponent raise? (If the database indicates that a challenger raised no money, it means just that—the challenger raised no money.) The Center for Responsive Politics presents data on this issue at the following Internet address: www.opensecrets.org. Data can also be found at FEC.gov. What are the most important sources of the representative’s campaign funds? Identify two or three important sources of funding. Is the candidate self-funding? (Click on the representative’s name at the website and it opens up to provide detailed data. You may find FEC.gov easier to use.)

6. What percentage of the vote did the representative receive in the 2020 election? Based on the number of terms the member has served, fundraising record, margin of victory, and party balance in the district, would you expect the representative would face a tough challenge in 2022 or have relatively little opposition? Write a paragraph addressing this question, explaining the reasoning behind your assessment. Ballotpedia provides information of each district (Google ballotpedia, the state, and the number of the district). (10 pts.)

7. The Project Vote Smart website includes links to several interest groups that rate members of Congress based on their voting records. (If you aren’t sure what an interest group is, you should reread Chapter 10 of the textbook.) The group identifies a set of votes that it considers important and gives the member a score depending on whether the member supports the policy positions favored by the group. [A high score means that the member voted the way the interest group likes most of the time.] Select one of the groups (using the pull-down menu) and research its evaluation of the member of Congress you are studying. What group did you select? (Be sure to choose a specific group rather than a category of groups.) With what sorts of issues is the group concerned? Be specific. How does the group feel about the member of Congress you are studying? What score did the group give the member? Would you expect the group to consider him or her an ally, an enemy, or something in between? Discuss. (10 pts.)

8. The Project Vote Smart website includes a link to speeches and public statements of each representative. Review some of the recent speeches and public statements of the representative you are studying. Identify an issue on which the representative has recently focused. What is the issue? Why does the representative think it is important? What position has the representative taken? Do not just copy the statement of the representative. (10 pts.)

9. To which political party does the member of Congress belong? Based on his or her voting record, interest group evaluations, fundraising sources, and issue positions, would you say that he or she is typical or atypical of members of his or her party? The textbook discusses political parties in Chapter 9. Explain the reasoning behind your answer. Give some specific examples of issue positions, group support, or voting records that back up your assessment. (10 pts.)

10. If you lived in this member’s district, would you vote to reelect him or her? Write a paragraph in which you discuss why or why not you would vote for the member? Be specific. (10 pts.)
