WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Judd Gregg won $853,492 from the Powerball lottery after matching five of six numbers in Wednesday's drawing, adding to his already sizable wealth.
"Even senators can be lucky," he told reporters outside the D.C. Lottery claims center, where he picked up his check.
The Republican from New Hampshire -- who chairs the Budget Committee and who has a reputation as a strict fiscal conservative -- said his wife is currently remodeling their home and already has plans for the new money.
Can’t we have the title “strict fiscal conservative” stripped from any Senator that voted to build the Bridge to Nowhere? Who runs the National Foundation of Misleading Labels? I want to write a letter.
