The National Journal is out with its authoritative annual rankings that list the most conservative and liberal members of the House.

The single-most conservative member of the House -- former Congressman Todd Akin, who list his bid for the Senate last year against Claire McCaskill

Two members of the Kansas delegation also made the list for most conservative -- Wichita-area Congressman Mike Pompeo at #10 and Lynn Jenkins of Topeka at #22.

The most liberal member of the House? That would be Missouri Congressman Lacy Clay from St. Louis.

The full list covering all members of the House and Senate has not been released.
