Kinkade won the special election for District 52 of the Mississippi House of Representatives. The seat was vacant following Tommy L. Woods's (R) resignation on July 30, 2012. Kinkade faced Jeremy Bryan and Van Wicker in the nonpartisan race on November 6, 2012. Since no candidate received a majority, a runoff took place between Kinkade and Bryan on November 27, which Kinkade won.[2][3][4]

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Mississippi scorecards, email suggestions to

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.


In 2014, the Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 2.[5]

Legislators are scored on "economic growth, jobs and other broad job-related issues."[6]
