The Senate subway is the new Red Line.
Washingtonians across the city were stuck in Metro cars and waylaid Tuesday en route to work due to a disturbance on the subway’s Red Line (a recurring issue for disgruntled commuters on the highly trafficked route).
Meanwhile, the Senate’s open-air, underground subway system that connects lawmaker office buildings to the Capitol was also under stress. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and several staff members were evacuated from the light rail during a routine system shutdown. Roll Call’s photographer caught a glimpse of them walking along the tracks to get to their destination.
Senators — they’re people too.
