Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Friday, October 09, 2015

Rep. Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) decision to drop out of the speakership race moments before the GOP vote shocked political observers and Congress alike. Twitter did not take kindly.

Caught Our Eye Posted by Steve Shapiro on Thursday, October 08, 2015

Schakowsky hired former J Street lobbyist Shannon Kellman to be her legislative assistant. Kellman had been working for J Street since late last year. During her time at the self-described "pro-Israel pro-peace" group, she lobbied Congress on issues relating to the Iran nuclear deal, boycott and divestment movement against Israel and American aid to Israel and Palestine.

We have found LegiStorm to be the ultimate tool in communicating with congressional offices, either individually or with a group. We have been able to reach out with messages to all chiefs of staff and legislative directors, or staff dedicated to specific areas. We believe that this ability was instrumental in passing two key pieces of legislation which were imperative to our members.
