“I’ve said it before, but the unfortunate thing is that the other candidates are talking about money.”

“The only qualification they show is the amount of money they tell Senators-elect they can give them.”

“People are discussing figures, but no one has approached me.” Some people are talking about 10, 20, 30, 40, and even more.

“Some are even boasting that they will give up to $200,000 to each Senator.” Figures are flying around. That is correct. “That is truly unfortunate,” he said.
