Show/Hide This Week's ScuttleButton Answer
Phil Burton for Congress — The longtime leading liberal voice in Congress, a Democrat from San Francisco first elected in 1964.
I Like “Matty” Nilsen for Freeholder — 1971 Republican from Elizabeth, N.J.
Levin A Senator to Be Proud Of — Democrat Carl Levin represented Michigan in the Senate from 1979 until his retirement after 2014.
So, when you combine Phil + Matty + Levin, you kinda get …
Film At Eleven. That old expression from local TV news where the viewer was told to expect some interesting footage but they had to wait until 11 pm.
And the randomly selected winner is … Austin Koch of Newton, Mass. Austin wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
