In today's Fix at the Washington Post, Jaime Fuller has put together a compilation of one-liners about new United State Representatives in There are LOTS of new members of the House. Here’s the one sentence you need to read about each of them.
Minnesota has but one new member of Congress, former Bluestem fodder provider Tom Emmer.
Fuller gathered sentences for each newbie, with Emmer's drawn from the Star Tribune:
Tom Emmer (R-Minn.): "Republican Tom Emmer, who failed in his bid to be Minnesota’s governor four years ago, won the seat being vacated by Rep. Michele Bachmann in the conservative Sixth Congressional District, ushering in an era that Emmer vows will be marked with civility and service to constituents."
We already miss the old school Emmer and will be keeping our eye out for any rebirth of his former persona.
