On The Hill: Norton Protests/Rallies To Keep DC Vote
Today on the Hill, Norton was joined by new DC mayor, Vincent Gray and others. Norton commented on the support of Gray as follows:
"It was all hands on deck this morning, as Mayor Vincent Gray, only 2 days in office, spoke passionately at the DC Vote rally to maintain DC's vote in the Committee of the Whole. Very important that he was there to send the message that an attack on the vote we do have is an attack on the city itself. I especially appreciated his presence. After all, it is not my vote. I'm just the messenger. Showing up is a necessary part of winning in this business, so it was really good that I was not there by myself among city leaders. DC Vote provided most of the troops, who then went to lobby Members to save our vote. I hope you keep track of what's happening with this issue."
