Menendez, Coburn Lead in 2010 Press Releases

Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) “put out more press releases in 2010 than any other senator — a rate of more than two a day,” according to Congress.org.

The New Jersey Democrat published 773 press releases on his official Congressional website last year, 147 more than the second senator on the list, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., who put out 626.

After them came then-Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., with 614; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., with 579; and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., with 551.

Staffers with Congress.org’s parent company, CQ Roll Call, tallied the totals after gathering the press releases as they were issued throughout the year on member’s official websites.
