This headline was supposed to be "buy a few more vowels" but the lack of coffee this morning meant I missed adding the "u". Oh well. I think this way works a bit better

Right now it reads that Rodney has decided to replace Young with A, E, I, O, and U.

I have a last name with 8 letters and one vowel. You pronounce an "a" you don't spell, which would melt Ayn Rand's mind.

Named after one of his ancestors. The Frelinghuysens are one of those "political dynasty" families. Five or six of em have been in Congress.

Fun fact: In the 2008 election, when he ran unopposed, Michael Moore tried to get a plant put on the ballot to make a point about dynasties.

This guy ended up my congressman after redistricting - first republican congressman in my lifetime.

Jersey districts are gerry'd pretty hard towards the incumbents, but hopefully momentum from this year will flip this seat.

Redistricting in NJ is done by a bipartisian commission.

Not to mention Frelinghuysen has been a congressman since the mid 90s, and was in the State Assembly before that.

He's something of a moderate(example: he used to be pro-choice), but he's been straying towards the derp side lately.
