Former Representatives John Porter (R-IL) and David Skaggs (D-CO) talked about their roles as co-founders of a group of more than 130 former members of Congress, and they responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. Their group recently sent a letter to all congressional candidates that said in part, “Congress appears gripped by zero-sum game partisanship. The goal often seems to be more to devastate the other side (the enemy, no longer the honorable adversary) than to find common ground to solve problems, much less to have a spirited but civil debate about how to do so.”

David Skaggs participated from Denver. close
