The Senate Republicans’ fundraising gala tonight featured the usual mix of lawyers, lobbyists and lawmakers but tonight there was an added ingredient: a bit of history.
Former Gov. Bill Owens, whose lengthy political career included a stint in the state Senate, was present as were three former GOP Senate minority or majority leaders: Norma Anderson of Lakewood, Mark Hillman of Burlington and Mike Kopp of Littleton.
All left their mark on the Senate.
“It’s good to see so many people,” said Anderson, who posed with plenty of folks who wanted a picture with her.
