Welcome to the Fresh435 Overstayers Profile library. Who or what is an Overstayer? That would be any U.S. Representative currently serving their 3rd term or beyond. Here we provide some basic information about who they are. Check out the example profile below or skip to the profiles.
The left half includes their state, district, start date, age, years of service, amount of 2020 campaign funding and most recently reported net worth. The right half shows their place on the political spectrum and a summary of their activity as a Representative over the last five-plus years. The performance metrics are on a colored scale. The greener it is, the closer the Rep is to the top ranking. Increasing shades of red reveal them to be near the bottom. Yellows are more average ranges.
We source the campaign finance data from the Federal Election Commission and the net worth values from OpenSecrets.org. The ideology score and performance metrics come from the Congressional report cards produced by GovTrack.us.
This list will continue to grow, as we currently have nearly 300 Overstayers in the 117th Congress. We will publish them in order of seniority–longest Overstayers to most recent. We’re kicking off on Day One with the “Fossil Fifteen”!
