After I posted the blog below on the N&O’s legislative-leaders gallery, I received the following from Dan Kane:
“I’d like to clarify what Mary said about Rep. Julia Howard. As a finance chairman, she definitely has clout in the legislature, much more than the average member. I did not include her among the three from the House in our Sunday report because I did not hear as much talk about her as I spoke with Republicans in researching this story and I had not seen her as heavily involved in moving legislation.
“Thanks for giving me an opportunity to respond.”
