Retiring senator reflects on lengthy public service
Herbert H. Kohl says he figured out early on in his 24 years in the U.S. Senate that he didn't want to be an ideologue of any sort.
"Wisconsin is a state of tremendous diversity, and dozens and dozens and dozens of legitimate interests -- some of which might be called Democrat, some Republican, but all of them legitimate," Kohl said in a visit to Hudson last week.
The 77-year-old senator will be retiring from public office at the end of the year.
