Newly elected representatives went through the tradition Wednesday of drawing lots for their new office spaces. Scripps Howard Foundation Wire followed three new members: Ted Lieu,D-Calif.,Barbara Comstock,R-Va.,and Ken Buck,R-Colo.
Rep.-elect Barbara Comstock,R-Va.,pulled number 57,making her the last to pick. She didn’t seem too bothered by the number,saying it was better than her days working as a congressional aide in one of the office annexes.
Those who choose last usually end up on the outdated and inconvenient fifth floor of the Cannon House Office Building.
