-- Congressional Democrats descended upon the House floor late Wednesday morning waging a sit-in to protest GOP inaction on gun violence. Several hours later, well into Thursday morning, these lawmakers remains camped out on the floor -- but they were not without their comforts.
Many representatives tweeted photos of pizza, pillows and blankets and boxes of donuts. Rep. Judy Chu, for example, tweeted a photo of a stack of Domino's pizza boxes, writing, "We just received a pizza delivery courtesy of citizens of California. Thank you! #NoBillNoBreak."
Also enjoying pizza was Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, who tweeted a photo of a stack of pizzas, writing "Thanks @RonWyden for bringing pizza to keep us going during our sit-in to demand action on gun violence prevention."
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries received gift boxes of goodies from Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono.
