Project Vote Smart does not permit the use of its name or programs in any campaign activity, including advertising, debates, and speeches.
Jodey Arrington has refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads.
