Teresa Tomlinson is the consummate public servant whose skills for accomplishing goals are only overshadowed by her high levels of unquestionable integrity, intelligence, and moral character. Teresa knows and cares about those who elect her and their life-sustaining issues. That is the very type of person we need in the U.S. Senate, and that is why I am asking you to join me in supporting her candidacy.
