Helpful freshmen

Sen. Sherrod Brown gets the Most Helpful Freshman award of the day. Brown, Ohio Democrat, seemed worried when Sen. Claire McCaskill jumped on an elevator after rushing off the Senate floor a few hours ago.

“You know we’ve got a second vote,” he told the Missouri Democrat, a freshman herself.

“I know,” McCaskill said. “It’s complicated.” Reporters listening nearby noted the freshmen are looking out for each other. For the record, McCaskill made it back from her complicated task in time to catch the second vote.
