Every Member of Congress is from somewhere. Choose a member of the House of Representatives and explore their representational relationship with their district. Richard Fenno (1977) argued it impossible to understand a member without understanding the district they represent.9 Start by learning about the district-the people, the politics, the economy, the geography, etc. How does your chosen member represent his constituents and how does that affect his/her electoral strategies and success?
