Of the 96 freshmen entering Congress next year, five served in the body before. But only two of them also were freshmen in the Republican revolution of 1994. One of those is Rep.-elect Charlie Bass of New Hampshire, and he sees positive differences for Republicans now, Roll Call reports.

bass, progress, gop, 2012“Two of us were so-called majority-makers twice,” he told the news service. “I don’t care about being a Congressman. I’ve done that. I ran because I think I can make a real contribution in a relatively short period of time to change America.”

And what’s different this time around? “A lot of the people there were surprised to be there [in 1995], and, quite honestly, utterly ill-prepared. And orientation was nowhere near as complete and carefully managed as it is now,” Bass says.

“I think a lot of new members got off to a weak start, because of the mechanics of not knowing what to do. And there’s just so much support now in how to hire people, how to do things right, so you don’t make any mistakes in the first month.”
