A sleepless congressman

The House of Representatives was in session over health care reform to nearly midnight last night, but Rodney Frelinghuysen was in Morris Plains at 10 am today to announce his reelection plans.

Well, they do have planes these days.

That’s true, but the congressman did not take a plane, or a train, or, for that matter, Greyhound. He said he drove home alone, fortified by soda and candy bars.

“There was a traffic jam outside Baltimore,” he said.

Still, he said he made it back to Morris County around 4 a.m.
