First grader Jude Webster has become a pro at sweet-talking senators after spending a day at the Capitol. He and his class visited the offices of every member of the Administration Committee on Monday with a delicious prop for their lobbying efforts.
"A lot of other states have desserts but not Texas," Jude explained to one of Hancock's staffers, as he waited for the lawmaker to end a phone call in the other room.
