A. and her lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent, => need that
B. and lobbying for wage and hour reform was persistent, so that => wrong idiom
C. her lobbying for wage and hour reform persistent, that
D. lobbying for wage and hour reform was so persistent,
E. so persistent her lobbying for wage and hour reform, that => wordy


only C & E use the correct Idiom
i think C - changes meaning "hour reform persistent"

My Answer : E
