Most Conservative and Most Liberal of the Senate

National Journal finds Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) is the Senate's "most conservative" member.

"Risch, a former governor, entered the Senate in 2009 at the age of 65. While not a figure with much national press since then, Risch has been a true stalwart when it comes to his conservative voting record, most recently being one of just eight Republican senators to vote against the Violence Against Women Act."

Meanwhile, Sen. Dick Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) both tied for "most liberal."
