Although Democrats came out on top in terms of percentages, a Republican takes the crown as the press release-releasing queen.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took the second-place slot, with 69 releases, followed by Rep. Edward MarkeyEd MarkeyOvernight Tech: Groups grade Clinton tech agenda | Facebook activates safety check in Istanbul | Another holdup for location data bill Overnight Cybersecurity: US sees drop in Chinese cyberattacks Senator pushes for cyber protections in vehicles MORE (D-Mass.), with 60. Reps. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) and Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) round out the top five press release pros.
Ros-Lehtinen tells ITK in an email that between sending out press releases on global issues for residents of her “international city” and keeping folks abreast of the “many pressing local needs,” her congressional district office is “quite busy.” She added, “It’s a great mix of topics that make Miami such an attractive destination for foreigners. My press office is also very active in letting the people I proudly represent inform local media of my whereabouts and community activities.”
Perhaps surprisingly, Pelosi’s office didn’t respond to ITK’s request for comment, even in a press release.
