Note on Fact Checks and Record Checks

We print every survey answer received from candidates word-for-word, but sometimes their answers leave out key information about their own records or objectively misrepresent the truth in a clear way.  We have tried to even-handedly provide the reader with Fact Checks and Record Checks after candidate answers to better provide you solid information to help you get a sense for where the candidate stand.  We generally spent more time adding this contextual information for the larger races like the Congressional races and in cases where one candidate responded but the other did not.
