Meier much more conservative than Boehlert; Novak cheers

Lately I've had a few questions about how Ray Meier, the Republican now running for the retiring Sherwood Boehlert's Congressional seat, compares to Boehlert. Here's Robert Novak's perspective - someone hoping for as conservative a government as possible - from Human Events:

4. In other cases, the general election outcome is far less certain, but the nominees are still more conservative and more outspoken than the members they hope to replace.


  • State Sen. Ray Meier (R-N.Y.) faces a tough race, but he is at least slightly favored to replace liberal Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (R-N.Y.).

I'd love to see an issue by issue comparison of Boehlert and Meier, but haven't found one yet.
