Feb 7, 2017
The Senators whose offices I visited today include:
Sessions (AL), Shelby (AL), McCain (AZ), Flake (AZ), Roberts (KS), Moran (KS), McConnell (KY), Paul (KY), Daines (MT), Schumer (NY), Heitkamp (ND), Inhofe (OK), Alexander (TN), Cruz (TX), Lee (UT).
The only Senators I spoke with personally were Cruz and McCain. Cruz seemed very interested and added that he had a direct line to the Oval Office. McCain's was in passing, but said he looks forward to meeting with me.
The irony of this day is that of all the senator staffers that I met with the rudest was Jeff Sessions' and the most congenial was Schumer's. Furthering the irony, Schumer's staff was the only one to reply to me today and invited me in for a work session tomorrow! I actually reminded his receptionist that then Congressman Schumer (1995) and I debated on GMA with Paula Zahn regarding my fight against the Brady Bill. And now here he is inviting me back. Let this be a reminder to us all, that what we are doing here to free our neighbors is a non partisan crusade!
Then this evening I went to a reception of the National Sheriffs' Assoc. The NSA President and I had a good talk and we agreed to meet together tomorrow.
All in all it was a long day with very sore feet. (But worth every blister!)
Thanks for all of your support!
