8% of bills she copatroned were introduced by Democrats. Of all of the copatrons of her bills, 67% of them are Democrats. Of all of the copatrons of all of the bills that she also copatroned, 51% of them are Democrats.

McClellan has run unopposed 3 times, and has never received less than 82% of the vote in a contested re-election year. (Silver Persinger spent $367 and picked up 17.05% of the vote in 2009.)
