Boozman, Pence take in some golf
WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Boozman hit the links Wednesday with Vice President Mike Pence, swinging the clubs at the Trump National Golf Club.
The well- manicured greens are 30 miles northwest of Washington and feature “majestic views of the Potomac River from every hole,” according to the club’s website.
U.S. Sens. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and David Perdue, R-Ga., also took to the greens.
Pence has a handicap of 15, according to Golf Digest.
Perdue, the former Dollar General CEO, is the best golfer in Congress and plays better than scratch, the magazine recently reported.
On Wednesday, Pence and Johnson played well, but “the star of the day was Sen. Perdue,” Boozman reported afterward. “I played, as usual, pretty grimly.”
Earlier, Boozman had predicted that the politicians would talk shop while they exercised. Johnson is chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Boozman, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, is chairman of its subcommittee on homeland security.
