Roll Call is continuing Twitter Q-and-A sessions. In this edition, we talked with politics reporter Shira Toeplitz.
Shira covers campaigns in the Midwest and Texas and leads redistricting coverage for Team Politics. She writes our Between the Lines coverage and is a key player on our 2012 presidential team. Don't miss her piece from Thursday's paper about how Members are stuck in limbo as they wait for their states' new maps to be drawn, or this profile of possible White House contender Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R).
Back in the day, she owned the Shop Talk column covering campaign moves and hires in the consulting world. (Kyle Trygstad handles that now.)

Because it was on Twitter, of course, her answers were kept to under 140 characters. A transcript follows.
(Editor's note: We realized after the fact this tweeter was spoofing Sen. Claire McCaskill and was mock-asking which Republican was a better candidate to unseat her. The answer's the same!)
