The Bipartisan Policy Center hosted a reception Wednesday for its new senior fellow class.
Former Sens. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) and Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.), former Senate Majority Leaders Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and retired Gen. Jim Jones were honored at the cocktail reception at the BPC’s headquarters.
Former Senate Majority Leader and BPC founder Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) was scheduled to give remarks in honor of the (jolly good) fellows.
Another Washington celeb who RSVP’d for the event is freshly minted Fox News White House correspondent (and HOH alumnus) Ed Henry.
The BPC was founded by Daschle and former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker (R-Tenn.), Bob Dole (R-Kan.) and George Mitchell (D-Maine) in 2007.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
