Every Tuesday, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we chat with freshman Rep. Steve Womack. The Arkansas Republican tells us about his admiration for Winston Churchill.
Q: What team do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: The Philadelphia Flyers.
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone (aside from your family), who would it be and why?
A: Alive: [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu. Why? Because in part to his military background and his governing of a country so isolated and threatened by hostile neighbors. Dead: Winston Churchill. Why? I often quote him and admire the way he served as British prime minister. It would also be interesting to get his perspective of American history during that era.
