Senator Chuck Schumer has completed visits to all of New York's 62 counties this year.....And its the 13th year he has done that....
That explains why he gets reelected and while some might chide him for the annual stunt, its actually a way to keep grounded with the lives of all New Yorkers...He may not see everything and everybody, but Mr.Schumer does visit enough towns and cities, big and small, to have a pretty good idea what the state is all about.
I know his staff is tasked with coming up with reasons for all the visits and they always come through.
Good thing he doesn't represent Iowa...with 99 counties.
Senator Charles E. Schumer
