Tom Udall Ties as Most Liberal Senator of 2012

Not so long ago, being labeled the "most liberal senator" might have been a problem for Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., who, with a 90.7 composite liberal score, is tied with Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut as the most liberal member of the Senate in National Journal’s 2012 vote ratings.

Yet the liberal label will likely have little effect on Udall's reelection bid next year. He is one of the most secure incumbents in the country, something he owes not just to his first-term record or his well-known name in Western politics, but to a changing New Mexico that now rests solidly in the Democratic column.
