Bernie Sanders Returns to Senate to Cast Gun, Other Votes
Washington Post – For the first time since Jan. 2, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) walked into the Senate to cast votes. He’d left as an unpretentious populist senator whose presidential campaign was clearly catching on; he returned with a full Secret Service detail and motorcade, with a few onlookers in the public gallery sporting brightly colored “Bernie” T-shirts.
Other than that, Sanders’s re-emergence as a senator was remarkably low-key. The senator slipped into his office in the mid-afternoon, joined by his wife Jane and watched by an NBC News cameraman. Two hours later he, Jane, and the Secret Service detail entered the Capitol through a first floor door, bypassing the basement where most reporters were waiting.
