Klobuchar and Ellison entertain overflowing offices of guests
Think back to the most ridiculously huge wedding you've attended. Hopefully it wasn't your own. Now think about the receiving line you had to stand in to give the bride and groom a hug with a couple minutes of small talk. Now replace the wedding party with politicians.
While many senators only mentioned these open houses to constituents who were planning to pick up their inauguration tickets, Klobuchar decided it would be more fun and chaotic if all Minnesotans came to hang out. Her office was overflowing with excited Minnesotans who wanted a hand shake and a Spam puff. Unfortunately the snacks were gone by the time I arrived. But hey, the huge crowd made Klobuchar look like the coolest kid on the block.
