Roraback Streak Continues

From Capitol Watch:

"Republican Sen. Andrew Roraback has done it again.

He did not miss a single vote this year - marking the 13th straight year of never missing a vote.

That record covers six years in the House of Representatives and seven years in the Senate - something that no other current legislator has accomplished. The Senate clerk's office, which keeps the records, says that 628 votes were cast this year - and Roraback was present for each one.

"I feel fortunate that neither illness nor any other emergency has interfered with my ability to work'' on legislation, Roraback said.

The streak goes back to January 1995, covering nearly 6,400 votes."
