Jim Himes received a warm welcome in Washington, D.C. today from fellow members of the Connecticut delegation. Said Himes:
“It is heart-warming to be welcomed with open arms by such talented and effective veteran Members of Congress. And it was a good feeling when we had to ask for a larger table at the House dining room for our first delegation breakfast meeting. As a united House team and working together with our Senators, I believe we’ll serve the interests of the people of Connecticut well.”
This is the first time since the 1960s that the entire delegation has belonged to a single party.
