It's time to expect more

The past eight years prove that we should expect more from our State Senator. When compared to Frank Morse's record, it's clear that Dan Rayfield will bring the change and fiscal responsibility we need to the Legislature.

"Dan Rayfield has the right approach to clean energy, higher education, and keeping our good-paying jobs here at home."
-Congressman Peter DeFazio
