Former Minnesota Republican Rep. Vin Weber served in Congress during the 80s and early 90s. He's now a lobbyist with the D.C. firm Clark & Weinstock and he says there's more than one way to climb the ladder of power in Congress.

Following up on our report about the different paths representatives Michele Bachmann and Erik Paulsen are taking in Congress, MPR's Curtis Gilbert asked Weber about the power structure in Congress and Minnesota's place within it.
