Capitol Mixtape with Congressman Eric Sorensen

Welcome back to Capitol Hill Mixtape! On this episode, I had the chance to chat with Congressman Eric Sorensen (D-IL). Prior to running for Congress, Sorensen spent over twenty years as a meteorologist – so he knows his way around a television camera and green screen. He is also the first openly LGBTQ+ member of Congress from Illinois and has already gotten to work advocating on issues for his community with the Congressional Equality Caucus. I really enjoyed hearing about his experience as he worked to become a trusted voice on the news in his community each day and how he carries that work forward into the halls of Congress. He also slipped up and let us know that he plays the piano, so we look forward to hounding him to come play for us at RIAA’s DC headquarters. 

Thank you again for continuing to join us for Capitol Hill Mixtape.
