Kevin Knobloch wrote an op-ed that ran in a number of papers across the country over the past week, talking about the New START treaty and the tradition of bipartisanism in the Senate that was reflected in votes on the INF Treaty under Ronald Reagan (95-5), the START I Treaty under George H.W. Bush (93-6), and SORT Treaty under George W. Bush (95-0).

Kevin spent 6 years on Captiol Hill in the 1980s, and was legislative director for Senator Tim Wirth (D-CO) when Wirth voted for the INF Treaty. He is currently UCS president.
