Notable attention is given to women’s rights groups, journalism organizations, veterans organizations and interests (especially women veterans), agriculture and dairy, rights of the elderly, Presidents and their staff, Texans in Washington, D.C., foreign policy (especially related to Russia and Iran), health and wellness, childcare, the military industrial complex (defense), disability, education, ethics violations, and Tyler, Texas.
