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.
Rep. Bill Cassidy has his blood drawn by Alesha Barbour during a free hepatitis screening in the Rayburn House Office Building hosted by the Congressional Viral Hepatitis Caucus to recognize "National Viral Hepatitis Testing Day."
