The Rising returns!
One of our favorite regular features on the Fix is "The Rising" (with apologies to Bruce Springsteen) -- where we spotlight lesser-known politicians who have "star" written all over them.
In the last election cycle, we highlighted the likes of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint (before he became "Jim DeMint") and even Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Steve Israel (N.Y.).
With the calendar now turned to 2011 -- and the 2012 election cycle very much underway -- we want to re-start our profiles of the up-and-comers of the political world, and we need your help.
In the comments section below, offer up your nominations -- and why! We will build a list and start writing off of it as soon as possible. If we pick your nominee, you'll get full credit in this space!
