As you can hear, we are in a noisy room, after a luncheon, with a face to face interview so there is a bit of back ground chatter but if want to be a congressman, this is the episode to pay attention to, our guest today was born in Carson City in 1958 , served in the Army and in private practice as an attorney, ran for state assembly then state senate, won and now he is a congressman. You might say that he is an example of when luck meets opportunity. He had to run and have the still sets needed to win and one those many traits he possesses is his close ties to those he represents in this district, so without further ado lets get right into the conversation with our representing from the 2nd District of Nevada, CONGRESSMAN MARK AMODEI.
