WTIP’s Jay Andersen has this intriguing interview with Rep.-elect Rick Nolan (D-MN8) as he prepares to take office in January. It was noted in the interview that Nolan’s election this November represents a 32-year span between his last term, which ended in 1980, and the one he’ll begin soon. Nolan spends most of the interview describing the key difference between his orientation for this year’s Congress and the times he served before: Money.
Specifically, he describes the advice and accommodations given to all member of Congress by both parties related to time spent raising money for their re-elections.
It’s an interesting look behind the curtain.
