Dear Senator

Washington, D.C. – A new report by the Congressional Management Foundation shows U.S. Senators are sent up to eight million pieces of mail a year and 83 million emails. And almost every item gets a response. The more powerful individual lawmakers become, the more mail they receive. But do Senators read the letters? And do they ever change their minds becuase of pressure from back home? Laura Strickler reports from our Capitol Hill Bureau.
