SHELBYVILLE — Congressman-elect Luke Messer uses a quirky old Jimmy Durante song to describe life before heading to Washington, D.C., with his family.
“Did you ever have the feeling that you wanted to go, and then you had the feeling you wanted to stay?”
While he doesn’t tickle the ivories or sing like Durante, Messer definitely knows the feeling.
The Shelbyville Republican will be sworn into federal office Thursday. With a slight smile and his wife Jennifer by his side, Messer, 43, said his family of five has been adjusting to the reality of a major life change since his Nov. 6 election victory.
