Meeting Senators is Pretty Cool


By: Gavin Nordberg

For the longest time, I have been obsessed with Senators and House members. One of the first days of the trip, Monday, we visited a number of Senate offices and ultimately met one Senator. It is so cool to me that I have been able to meet one of them. Being in a Senator’s office, speaking with him, and asking questions is an experience and a feeling like no other, at least for me. I’m sure there are people out in DC and around the country who have once felt the way I do, and now they get to see Senators every day. In a few days myself, along with another group member, Hannah, will have the opportunity to meet with our home state Senator, Amy Klobuchar.


Gavin get excited about Senator Klobuchar’s office plaque.

If you know me, you know how excited I am for this. She has been someone I have been intrigued with for a long time. I love the work that she does, I love her Minnesota roots, and I love her care and compassion for the issues. Some weeks before this J-term, RPC asked me if there was anyone that I wanted to meet while we were in DC. I told her that the only person I wanted to meet was Amy Klobuchar. After laughing a bit, RPC didn’t promise anything, but she said that we would keep a look out and our options open. Now that this looks like it is actually going to happen, it makes me pretty dang excited.
