Debbie Dingell, John Dingell — July 14, 2015 at 8:19 am

I need a favor and it won’t cost you a thing


This past weekend, former Dean of the House John Dingell and his wife Congresswoman Debbie Dingell were gracious enough to participate in our Eclectafundraiser party. It’s hard to repay such generosity to a power couple like them but I’m going to try anyway.

Congresswoman Dingell is in a competition with her colleagues in Congress to see who can get the most social media followers on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. I want to help her win this and there are only a couple of days left in which to do it.

So, here’s the favor you can do me to help me repay the favor they did for me: Follow Congresswoman Dingell on:

That’s it. Easy peasy. And you’ll be doing me a favor by helping her win this thing. If Eclectablog readers can’t help push her over the top, nobody can! It needs to happen in the next couple of days so please click through today and help her win.

Thank you!

P.S. By the way, Eclectablog isn’t the only place where John Dingell has been recognized for his Twitter prowess this week. Yesterday at the White House Conference on Aging, President Obama made these remarks:

I want to thank the members of Congress who are here, those in my administration who’ve been working on this issue. I want to especially point out one of my favorite former members of Congress, a legend who’s here today — John Dingell. John, thank you.

John was elected to Congress when he was just 29 — an over-achiever. Ten years later, he presided over the House chamber for the vote to pass Medicare into law — an achievement for which he and his father can take some credit. Last week, John turned 89 — so we want to wish John a happy birthday. He’s been a retiree for six months, but he’s keeping busy — just check out his Twitter feed if you don’t believe me. So he’s still got some pretty strong opinions.

Awesome sauce.
