APSU alumna reflects on congressional fellowship

 

On June 8th, Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., claimed victory in the Democratic primary runoff election in Little Rock, AR.

It was a race in which unions particularly have spent millions of dollars against Lincoln in a failed attempt to keep her and other incumbents from another victory.

The reason? It could be something as simple as perseverance.  

“She has been counted out so many times,” said Courtney Cooper, a legislative fellow for Lincoln and an Austin Peay State University alumna. “What’s so unique to me about her is that this woman can maintain a 25-member staff, a congressional office, a re-election campaign and a family. She’s keeping it all together.”
