Hot Mic: Senator Can't Wait to 'Jet' Out of Town

As the Senate worked through a series of procedural motions and votes on Thursday night, one senator just wanted catch his flight home.

Caught on a clerk's microphone as the roll call for a vote on the Highway Trust Fund patch was read, the senator tells the clerk it is time for "summer vacation."

"We have a plane home ... [at] 9:30," the senator says to the clerk. "Bags are packed, ready to go ... leaving on a jet plane."

Although the Senate is in session today, the next vote series is scheduled for Sept. 8,  when senators return from a five-week recess.
