WWL’s Eric Paulsen follows Scalise as he speaks to a local Chamber of Commerce, meets with House Leadership, and is briefed by staff. Watch to get a closer look at Whip Scalise’s office and a special meeting space that he named the “Lincoln Room” in honor of former President Abraham Lincoln.  This is part one of a two part series, with the second half airing during tonight’s 10 PM CT newscast.
