From our back pages for Throwback Thursday, a 2006 profile of Mike Ross by Warwick Sabin, which begins like this:

On a recent Saturday afternoon in Prescott, U.S. Rep. Mike Ross was in a quiet cow pasture, setting up his skeet machines.

"I'm probably the only member of Congress who shoots a shotgun 150 times a weekend," Ross said of his favorite hobby as he was getting a box of shells from the back of his pickup truck.

And ends with this line: " 'In every race I've ever run, I've always been the underdog,' Ross said as he was putting away his guns. 'I kinda like that.' "
