WASHINGTON -- Sen. Angus King is once again getting national media attention as he takes his seat in the Senate.
On Sunday, Maine's junior senator is slated to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press."
King was also featured in a segment aired on the NBC Nightly News on Thursday, the same day King was sworn in to the Senate. Former longtime NBC anchor Tom Brokaw conducted the interview with King and his wife, Mary Herman, in Brunswick. The town itself also received significant airtime in the piece.
King, an independent who is caucusing with the Democrats, once again pledged to strive to bring a more collaborative approach to Capitol Hill.
“I’m not arrogant enough or naïve enough to think that Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid are going to say tell us how to do this, Angus,” King told Brokaw. “But if I can nudge it a bit toward rules that make sense, I think that will be an accomplishment in itself.”
