Today Knowlegis released their 2008 power rankings of Members of Congress. My opponent ranks a lowly 178. The rankings are based on the members position in Congress, actions taken to influence legislation and the number of legislative successes. When elected Congressman, I pledge to be a proactive member, not a do-nothing. Plus it helps out that my party holds majority power in Congress, therefore giving me increased access to the top Congressional members, committees and positions.
