This was a hard vote for me. So many excellent Senators. Sumner was my 3rd choice. I really wanted him to be one of my top two picks, but Webster is crucial, as is Kennedy.

You should do New York next. Also if I recall correctly, Brooke was the first Republican Senator to call for Nixon to resign.

I already did NY. It was one of the first states I did. You should be able to find it.

Perhaps when you're done with senators are you going to do Governors?

I'll probably do that, but maybe not right away.
