A new Washington Post-ABC News poll out this week finds that only 22% of Americans would vote to re-elect their Member of Congress, the lowest level in the history of the poll.
Major General (ret.) Irv Halter pointed to this poll as a reason voters may abandon 8-year incumbent Congressman Doug Lamborn.
"If you want to change Congress, you have to change the kind of person you send to Congress," Halter remarked. "We have to transcend partisanship and ideology and send different kinds of leaders with real world experience and a commitment to get our Congress working again."
