We’re on Hiatus!

WashingtonWatch.com is taking the summer off!

Congress isn’t meeting. The weather in Washington, D.C., is HOT. The nation is paying attention to politics, not policy, at the Republican and Democratic conventions. And we’re working on a major revamp of the site.

So we’ll see you at the end of the summer with some very interesting improvements to our web site!
