RS Kerr (OK-D) is one of the few OK politicians who will have 5 actions. He was known as being somewhat secretive of his ideology. One never knew exactly where he stood on things. He seemed like the type of guy that you could see supporting Civil Rights or signing the Southern Manifesto. I think ultimately his only ideology was getting more things for his state. 

His actions:

Kerr, Robert S 1943 First Gov of OK originally born there
Kerr, Robert S 1944 a cand for VP at Dem Conv
Kerr, Robert S 1952 Dem Pres Cand
Kerr, Robert S 1956 Southerner who does not sign Southern Manifesto, despite usual silence on Civil Rights
Kerr, Robert S 1960 Kerr-Mills Act alternative to Medicare
Kerr, Robert S 1961 gets much pork for Oklahoma
Kerr, Robert S 1961 the Senate's leading power after LBJ goes
Kerr, Robert S 1962 advises JFK admin on tax legislation
Kerr, Robert S 1962 co-engineers Trade Act of 1962
