Backbencher of the Week

This week the Backbencher of the Week recognizes a local.  The winner is Rep. Bruce Braley(D-IA-1).  In 2006, Braley won a seat that Republicans held for 30 years.  During his first term, Rep. Braley did a good job on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and was one of the most effective questioners on the committee.  Just recently, Rep. Braley became a vice-chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee(DCCC) and head of the DCCC's Red to Blue program.  In this position, Braley will be responsible to overseeing campaigns in districts the GOP currently holds.  For doing such a good job in such quick fashion, we award Rep. Bruce Braley this week's Backbencher of the Week.
