Blunt Lobbying Retiring Congressmen

Congressman Roy Blunt lobbied about 10 retiring Republican representatives late Sunday in hopes of getting their votes on the proposed $700 billion dollar financial institution rescue plan, Politico reports.
Illinois Rep. Ray LaHood reportedly encouraged the lawmakers in the room to back the proposal, telling them, "We're not going to face repudiation from the voters."
