National Constitution Center:Aug 22, 2014From now until Constitution Day on September 17, we are sharing fun facts about the signers of the Constitution. Can you guess this Founding Father?
“I had extensive political experience before coming to the Philadelphia convention, having served in the Continental Congress, my state senate, and as state governor. My fellow delegate and I did not arrive in Philadelphia until late July, as our home state refused to pay for our travel. After the convention, I continued my political career, serving as state governor several times as well as U.S. Senator. I also had the honor of serving as the first president pro tempore.”
