Quotes

"We're looking forward to getting these folks off the streets and helping them get back on their feet."
"We began walking after work for an hour or so to relieve stress," James said. "You get to know people really well when you do that time after time after time. So when I started asking myself how I could give myself enough time to just think, this seemed ideal. I thought, 'OK. If you walk across the country you will have an inordinate amount of hours to think. If I force myself to take that time.'"
"I am thrilled to open our Huntington HQ this week and kick off our Huntington campaign," Israel said last week. "Huntington has long been my home and I have spent my career fighting for our middle-class families, our veterans and our seniors. Our neighbors know they can count on me to fight for tax breaks for middle-class families instead of big interests and to stand up against the war on women's rights. Those are the Huntington values I bring to Congress."
