Nov 24 2004

Wilmington, DE – Senator Tom Carper and Congressman Mike Castle will speak with the Young Democrats and Young Republicans of the Charter School of Wilmington on Monday, November 29, 2004. The Senator and Congressman will talk about the elections, how their outcomes will change the makeup of Congress, and how the Democrats and Republicans can work together to get things accomplished in Washington. Earlier this month, Senator Carper, along with Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) and a handful of other Senators, led new member Senate orientation in Washington. Newly elected members of the Senate spent three days working on bipartisan cooperation and relationship building. Senator Carper served as a mentor and played a role in developing the programming for orientation. As a former Governor, Senator Carper based the programming on the National Governors Association model which stresses working across party lines. Congressman Castle is the President of the Republican Main Street Partnership (RMSP), the nation's largest organization of Republican moderates which includes Members of the House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate and Governors. RMSP promotes thoughtful leadership and serves as a voice for centrist Republicans and to partner with individuals, organizations and institutions that share centrist values. Castle brings the common-sense approach of Delaware's bipartisan legislating to Washington and continues to cross the aisle to form coalitions to find pragmatic, bipartisan solutions to some of the most pressing problems facing the country including stem cell research, education, and fiscal responsibility.
