Three Republican politicians received perfect scores Tuesday in the 2012 Club for Growth congressional scorecard: former Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina, and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah.
Marco Rubio of Florida, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin were three additional GOP senators to receive the anti-tax group’s “Defender of Economic Freedom” award, meaning they scored better than 90 percent for both the year and over the course of their careers.
