It's an enjoyable article.
Though U.S. Sen. Chuck Hagel came to Jackson Monday at the request of U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz, once there, the Nebraska Republican let his true intentions be known.
“I must confess, I’m really here to meet the mayor of Hillsdale,” Hagel said.
Speaking at a press conference at Schwarz’s Jackson office, Hagel and Mayor Michael Sessions gave their support to the Battle Creek Republican in his re—election bid for the GOP nomination in the 7th Congressional District. Schwarz and Hagel also took part in an economic roundtable with Jackson business leaders earlier in the day.
Turning to Sessions at the beginning of his speech, Hagel said, “You understand this celebrity business,” and told the 18—year—old mayor, “You’re as good looking, smart and articulate as I thought you’d be, and you obviously have wise judgment in your commitment to your congressman.”
