Letter: Long will move to the front

A “backbencher” is a name given to a congressional representative who is not a leader in his or her party. A backbencher does not wield influence and rarely shapes legislation. This can be because of personality, intelligence, or work ethic. If we elect Carolyn Long, we will not have a backbencher representing the 3rd District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
