Brandenburg named most conservative state senator

LANSING—State Sen. Jack Brandenburg, R-Harrison Township, was named the most conservative member of his caucus Wednesday by the Michigan Information & Research Service (MIRS) newsletter.

Brandenburg posted a 97 percent conservative voting record based on 33 record roll call votes selected by MIRS and calculated by an online tool that is available to the public at

“If I had to describe my feelings in one word, the word would be ‘proud,’” said Brandenburg. “I ran as a conservative and promised the voters of my district I would uphold conservative principles and ideals. This ranking proves that I kept my promise.”
