Congressional Intern

This summer, Cory Odenkirk (Political Science, 2014) worked as a Congressional Intern in the Washington, D.C. offices of Representative Bob Gibbs. Cory helped the full time staff prepare legislation, including the Farm Bill, the Immigration Bill, and a Transportation Bill on high speed rail; he also handled various aspects of constituent affairs including Capital tours and answering mail and phone calls.  He was also able to attend Agriculture, Budget, Transportation, and Foreign Affairs committee hearings as well as attend presentations by Chuck Todd, Steve Forbes, Senate Chaplain Barry Black, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Martin Dempsey, Senator Cruz, Majority Whip McCarthy, among many other interesting business people and politicians.
