A group of dedicated Republicans will witness this historic moment from Congressman Runyan’s DC office.  We will cover all the action from Jon’s Longworth Office so check back regularly.

9:59 Just arrived in DC. 2 hours 28 minutes by car. No Traffic!

10:48. The line to get into the Longworth Building is very very long. The security screening takes too long. Entered the Cannon Building and used the underground tunnel to get to Longworth. No security wait at the Cannon Building. Smart!
