Quick News

Brent has been fun to watch. I’ve know him and his family for several years. I’m not new to political news but just getting into podcasts. This is a great new service from Cygnal.

Excellent Podcast

I just listened to the first podcast and thoroughly enjoyed it. When I first met Brent Buchanan I could immediately tell he was highly intelligent and the type of person I wanted to be like when it comes to politics. I look forward to learning more. I’m certain, in an ever evolving world, Brent will successfully work with his team to achieve positive results no matter the obstacles.
