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.
