David Grant talked about his Christian Science Monitor story, “The Dealmakers: How Dealmaking Gets Done in Congress,” and he responded to telephone calls and electronic communications. His story concerned the political climate in the 113th Congress, and the members who negotiated compromises on the Senate filibuster, a continuing resolution to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year, and the renewal of the Violence Against Act. He said that contrary to past congresses when moderate Democrats and Republicans worked out deals, due to the steep decrease in moderates, the more “extreme” members of both parties were fashioning agreements.
