Roll Call’s photographers followed Congress out of town this recess. From a protest outside a President Donald Trump rally in Phoenix to Trump Tower in New York to a town hall — and another protest — in Pennsylvania, Roll Call hit the road this August to capture life outside the Beltway.
Here’s the month in photos:
