Heitkamp, Booker Host Frosh Mixer

A pair of senators who were recently freshmen are hosting a bipartisan dinner for their new colleagues Monday evening. Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Cory Booker of New Jersey were hosting the event at Heitkamp's residence. At least five of the Senate freshmen were planning to attend, according to a Senate aide, who noted that all of them were invited for a light-hearted evening designed to help foster bipartisanship among some of the newest senators. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, was also scheduled to join in feasting on chicken enchiladas. There would, of course, be a vegan version served as well for Booker.
