As anyone on Bill Foster's mailing list knows, our new congressman is certainly keeping busy. We get a press release every time he shakes hands with voters at the local Jewel.
But many of his announcements have been newsworthy, like today's press conference with Sen. Dick Durbin about suing OPEC and suspending shipments to the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Earlier this week, he proposed a national fund to help military families.
It's fun to watch Foster jump right in. But given the short turnaround before his next election, is he actually making a difference so soon, or is he just in full campaign mode already?
