Kerry’s Absence From Senate Not Reducing His Impact By Scott Ott

by John Hawkins | June 18, 2004 2:01 am

Rejecting a call from Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to resign from the U.S. Senate, John Forbes Kerry today said that missing 87 percent[1] of Senate votes in 2004 has “not diminished my effectiveness in the least.”

“If you examine my 16-year record in the Senate, you’ll see that I’m just as effective when I’m not there as I was when I was there,” said Mr. Kerry. “The major legislation on health care, energy and homeland security that I didn’t introduce then, I’m not introducing now. The colleagues who I didn’t rally to my causes then, remain unrallied. I think it’s disingenuous for Gov. Romney to suggest that my absence from the Senate harms America in any way.”
