Partners, Congressional Staff & Aides

Throughout his long political career, Senator James A. McClure and Louise have worked with hundreds of capable people, many as staff in his Congressional offices or as partners in McClure's political consulting firm. This unique group remains fiercely loyal to the Senator and maintains close ties with the McClure's. These individuals are easily described as bright, witty, dedicated, thoughtful and a fun-loving group, with ultimate respect for the leadership qualities of their former boss and partner. Many have achieved long and successful careers in the public policy arena and attribute much of their success to the high ethical standards, integrity and work ethic of Senator McClure.

Below is a partial list of these devoted colleagues. Over the next several months, we will add photos, brief profiles, quotes, and more names - with your help. Please let us know who we should add to this list plus a few sentences to update us on their current status.
