1. Moving photo, thank you!

When I heard these Democratic heroes took a stand by "sitting ", I let out a cheer and I got CHILLS! Did you ever find a list of the participants? I would love to see it. Thanks!

2. Haven't found a list,

but just saw these participants:

Rep. Katherine Clark, D-MA 5th District, and Rep. Joseph Kennedy III, D-MA 4th District, has joined a group of her House of Representatives colleagues in a "sit-in,"

Representatives Robin Kelly (D-IL 2nd District) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL 9th District) joined colleagues for a sit-in on the House Floor.

3. Fan of Edwards here from California ...

I just discovered she lost her Senate bid and will lose her seat in Congress. Is this true?

4. Yes, Auggie, it's true.

Her seat in Congress will be taken by Anthony Brown, who lost his race for governor to a repug, Hogan.

I was saddened but not surprised, as Van Hollen's a member of the 'in' group of the Dem party. and had a lot of $$$ to spend against Donna Edwards.
