Few Wisconsin candidates take political courage test

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- None of Wisconsin's congressmen returned a political courage test sent by the nonpartisan Project Vote Smart.

  Not many of their opponents did either.

  Only 22 percent of congressional candidates and 21 percent of candidates for the state Legislature returned the survey.

  The test asks them questions about the budget, taxes, environment, health care and international issues.

  Project Vote Smart says the return rate for congressional candidates in the state has fallen from 51 percent in 1992.

  Of the 43 candidates for the Legislature who returned the test, only six were incumbents.
