New Lame Duck, Same Lame Congress: Congressional Hits and Misses

Week of Nov. 12, 2018

It’s a new day on Capitol Hill with the 2018 elections finally (mostly) in the past. Incoming members from across the country poured into D.C. this week for their first glimpse of their new jobs, while leadership elections began and incumbents returned to the House and Senate floors following a month of recess. See the video for Sen. Charles E. Grassley feeling shy, Rep. Liz Cheney talking about advice from her former vice-president father and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse deconstructing a Senate desk.
