BEYOND HYPER-PARTISANSHIP: Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar Participating In News Conference On Efforts To End Partisan Seating At State Of The Union

New Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD1) continues his busy schedule in Congress.  At 9:00a.m. (Arizona Time), he will participate in a news conference with lawmakers Sens. Mark Udall (D-CO) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Rep. Heath Shuler (D-NC), about the status of their efforts to end partisan seating at tonight's State of the Union address (by President Obama).  Expect numbers.

Gosar was an early adopter in this effort begun by Udall.  Word comes that he is pairing off with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) because of their mutual interest in pediatric dentistry.  (Gosar has been a dentist and Cummings has campaigned to increase kids' access to dental care.)
