The California Democrat shared the happy news with colleagues at a dinner Tuesday night. Berkley surprised Sanchez by announcing the upcoming nuptials at a farewell gathering for outgoing female Democrats in Congress.
Berkley says the news was met with “much toasting and applause.”
A spy with knowledge of the announcement says, “It was a sweet interlude on an otherwise bittersweet occasion.”
As we reported last month, Sanchez is engaged to longtime beau Jack Einwechter, although the Congresswoman’s office remains mum on the impending wedding.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
