More than 75 people gathered in Lawrence today (FRI) to share their opinions with Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins. The Republican hosted the town hall meeting as part of a tour of the 2nd District. Congressional partisanship was on the mind of Bruce Johanning (joe-HAN-ing) from Lawrence. He says members of Congress aren’t doing enough to compromise on important issues.
Representative Jenkins says some constituents have told her they don’t want her to compromise. She says the mood in Congress actually reflects a divide among voters.
Jenkins’ tour will continue next week with a stop in Iola.
