Capitol Hill: Jeff Bingaman, Education Senator
For a bunch of his time in the Senate, Bingaman was on the Senate education committee, balancing out the more ahem, outspoken Democratic members from the Northeast. And, for a few years during the late 1990s, I was fortunate enough to have been his education LA.
Some of Bingaman's other education LAs, Fellows, and LCs include: Carmel Martin. Peter Zamora. Michael Yudin. Rena Subotnik. Chris Harrington. David Schindel. Sanjay Kane.
