A former U.S. senator who earned national recognition for fighting waste, fraud, and abuse within the federal government is now touting a tool to rein in that government.

Tom Coburn visited Raleigh today to help promote the Convention of States. It’s an organization pushing states to support a process spelled out in Article V of the U.S. Constitution. The process would allow states to initiate amendments to the Constitution.

Coburn explained his support for the Convention of States during an interview for CarolinaJournal.com.
