I had to respond to the Jan. 29 letter, "Reaching Stauber no easy call."

I wrote an email to U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar and got a response almost immediately. She thanked me for my concerns. She also stated she was humbled to be our senator and that one of the most important parts of her job was listening to the people of Minnesota. She is in Washington, D.C., doing her job.

I also wrote an email to U.S. Rep. Pete Stauber but received no response. He was not in our capital doing his job.

Republicans seem to be hiding because they have no backbone to face President Donald Trump. U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell seemed to be off the grid for two weeks. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also seemed to be nowhere to be found.
