Missing Roy Blunt

The Ozarks Congressman gets a nice, positive write-up in The Hill featuring colleagues who say his leadership will be missed when he leaves the House next year.
PRO-BLUNT BULLETS in the piece:
  • "We’re going to lose a hell of a lot," Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said.
  • Blunt’s wins frustrated Democrats so much that they changed the rules of the House
  • "They lose a member who has a great sense of the pulse of the conference," said former Republican Conference Chair Adam Putnam.
  • "I have a great deal of respect for [Blunt’s] integrity," said Democratic Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.
Little mention of his U.S. Senate race, besides a short mention that he's behind in the money race.
