WSJ: Crapo Key In Deficit Deal

Idaho's senior lawmaker is the subject of a story in Friday's Wall Street Journal, which says Crapo is working with three other senators who joined him in voting for the deficit commission's recommendations in December. "We are beyond the point of gridlock," Crapo told the Journal. "We can't simply allow parochial interests or other narrow interests to prevent action. We need to start taking major steps to address our debt problems." The Journal's Corey Boles writes that Crapo has been drawn "into the limelight from what had previously been a low-key congressional career"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
