What we’re talking about around the Thanksgiving table

We’re pretty excited about Thanksgiving! Friends, family, football, and food — what’s not to love?

As you’re enjoying your family dinner, if you find the conversation veering towards political debates, sports trash talk, or the nosey neighbor mom wants to complain about, we have a few ideas for something different!  

Here’s what we’ll be talking about around the Thanksgiving table:

The adorable children from this year’s swearing-in.


…including that time we were introduced to Rep. Roger Marshall (R-KS)’s family…and dabbing 😉


That time Reps. Will Hurd (R-TX) and Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) drove from Texas to Washington, D.C. together in their bipartisan carpool.

…and inspired others to do the same

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL)’s mustache and mullet.

All the times Reps. walked a mile in their constituents’ shoes.


The fact that three Chairs — Budget Committee Chair Diane Black (R-TN), Education and Workforce Committee Chair Virginia Foxx (R-NC), and House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) all climbed up into trucks and trailers this year. #Trendsetters


We’ll definitely be talking about that time Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) not only caught a mouse in his office — but then posed for a picture with it! (We may wait to talk about that one after dinner)


Because it makes us happy, we’ll be talking about all the cute family pictures Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) shared with the world this year.


That epic scooter race between Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rep. Sam Johnson (R-TX)!

How can we not talk about the cutest new member of the House GOP family?

Happy Thanksgiving from the House GOP Team!
