Luke Russert Makes Rounds, Brings Candy Canes

Luke Russert
made the rounds Tuesday evening in the cramped and stuffy attic of the Senate Radio & TV gallery, handing out candy canes to reporters as part of his effort to whip up support heading in to the RTCA annual elections, which take place next week.

“Hello, I’m Luke Russert and I’m running for the board,” he announced cheerily.

Most reporters had no qualms about accepting the sugary pay off. Little did Russert appear to know, but he was handing out his goodies to a bunch of print reporters, who are not eligible to vote in the Radio & Television Correspondent’s Association general election.

“Luke who?” quipped one reporter.

“Luke, the guy with the candy canes,” replied another scribe.
