With frigid temperatures hitting the Washington region, many Senators wore winter attire Tuesday — and a few got into the sartorial holiday spirit.
Several Members, including Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), were spotted wearing heavy overcoats, some of which looked appropriate for ski slopes.
Others found more novel ways to stay warm: Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) is still unshaven with his wintertime beard (which is growing in thicker each day), while Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) sported a red sweater vest under his suit.
But Sen. Ben Nelson wins style points for his festive red tie with green polka dots. “Last year I never got to wear a Christmas tie; I’m wearing a Christmas tie today so that may answer the question,” the Nebraska Democrat told a Roll Call reporter.
Rep. Bill Cassidy has his blood drawn by Alesha Barbour during a free hepatitis screening in the Rayburn House Office Building hosted by the Congressional Viral Hepatitis Caucus to recognize "National Viral Hepatitis Testing Day."
Roll Call has launched a new feature, Hill Navigator, to advise congressional staffers and would-be staffers on how to manage workplace issues on Capitol Hill.
