Alabama is the most Republican state in the country, according to The Hill’s new rankings.

The Hill ranked all 50 states on a scale of red to blue, looking at voting history in presidential elections, party breakdown in Congress, and elections for governor and state legislature.

Alabama has voted for Republican presidential candidates in the last seven elections. Both senators are Republican as well as six of seven House members.

The South and West dominate the list of the five most conservative states. Some candidates, though, are hoping to buck their state’s history in November’s midterms.
