Getting to Know Your Congressional Senators
Identify your Congressional Senators. Using the Senate (senate.gov) website you will research your senators’ legislative accomplishments. You will then compose a 500 word essay in which you declare
your support or opposition to your senators’ re-election.
Within a 500 Word essay please include:
Describe your state. What are its major cities? Is it predominantly rural or urban? Does your state have important industry, finance, and tourist centers? Does the unique ‘make-up’ of your state
influence legislation or policy positions?
Does your state lean Republican or Democrat? Why?
Who are your senators? What are their party affiliation, background, length of service, voting record, and key issues?
Given what you have read for this week, do your senators follow the delegate or trustee concept of a legislator?
Would you support your senators’ re-election to office? Why or why not?
Support your answer(s) with information obtained from the text and at least two academic sources.
