Q: Which team do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: Detroit Red Wings.
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone (aside from your family), who would it be and why?

Q: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
A: “Swamp Shark.”
Q: Who’s your best friend in Congress?
A: When I get one, a dog. (HOH advises McCotter to chat with Sen. Roy Blunt.)
