Find out what this senator likes to do in Mexico

Today's Woman Now

Julie Denton, winner of our Most Admired Woman award for the Political category, might surprise you with what she likes to do in her spare time. Although she can be tough and proper on the Senate floor, there are a few things you might not know about her.

“The best place I went fishing was Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,” Julie says. “They have billfish like marlin and swordfish, and I really wanted to get one. Greg Stumbo, Speaker of the House, had been there and had gotten one, and he had it mounted and sent back, and I thought, ‘Daggone it, the Senate’s gotta have a billfish too!’ So we went out and I got one on the line, and they strapped me into the chair, and I was working it and working it, but it breached out of the water and threw the hook. The captain was so mad because it would have been the biggest one of the season for his boat. So I caught the big one, but it got away.”
