This week, he has had a confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a weekly morning coffee reception for visiting Montanans—probably his last—and a lot of interviews about the impending end of his near 40-year career in Congress.

News Director Sally Mauk sat down with the Senator in his D.C. office to discuss his new venture and his public service legacy.
