Rich is an Iraq veteran and also served as senior lawyer at three U.S. Senate committees, working for principled legends like the late Jesse Helms--one of the few to serve on Capitol Hill with experience in both the mechanical trades and the armed forces
Douglas will leverage his military background and legal experience as former senior counsel to key U.S. Senate committees to protect the nation's security interests and reform foreign policy in the wake of the Iran agreement, the so-called "red-line" against Syria using chemical weapons, Russian aggression in Ukraine and the threat of ISIS at home and abroad.
"These times demand a mastery of Senate rules and the subject matter," said Douglas. "They require tenacity to overcome inertia and Senate unwillingness to assert itself in policies defining the nation. If the Senate fails, we fail. I aim to prevent that."
MIKULSKI: What a poor civilian leader Pipkin has turned out to be, to either help Bush or support our troops. He didnít have a plan for the war and he certainly didnít have a plan for peace.
