Hi,
I read on the Internet this sentence, but I don't understand it.Could possibly help me understand its meaning?

He works the phones with his state's congressional delegation ..

What does " TO WORK THE PHONES" mean? He spends a lot of time calling people to try to accomplish his goals.
It's a common slang expression.

Best wishes, Clive
