Rush Holt's running for US Senate in New Jersey. He's also a rocket scientist/nuclear physicist and world class progressive.
His Geek Out event is on right now and is a wonderful introduction to this compassionate, profoundly well-informed US Representative who's running for US Senate and would make a GREAT senator.
He supports reducing student interest rates, renewable energy, the Dream Act, more scientific research, verified voting and a transaction tax.
AND, did I mention that Rush Holt is the only US Congressman to beat IBM's Watson Computer at Jeopardy?
