When Senator Jon Tester arrived in Washington after winning his Senate campaign in 2006, I read that he brought a cooler of his own meat from Montana. Since then I have spent many a sleepless night wondering if Tester had succeeded in finding a decent steak house in D.C.
Well, today, I had the opportunity to ask him.
Apparently he still brings his own beef because "he knows where it came from."
Now I'm a wussy, beltway insider vegetarian, but if Jon Tester offered me a steak, I think I'd have to eat it. Shaking his hand, I could tell that this was a man who truly knows his meat.
