Under The Dome: Sen. Jeff Merkley Checks In

jeff_merkley_senator_in_senate.png

Not all of the Democrats sat in silence during President Trump's recent State of the Union address. 

Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley stayed busy during the speech, or at least his Twitter account did. 

Merkley tweeted many responses to the president's remarks, and he's had much to say in the days since.  Never a dull moment in Washington; the senator visits from there to give an update on business in Congress and how it affects Oregon.
