House members try a DIY preemptive bipartisanship

The congressman scarfed down a stack of pancakes and bacon at a breakfast place near the water. He was preparing for a packed district workday.

First, an urban family center, followed by a town-hall-style session at a senior home. Then lunch and a tour of the University of Maryland hospital.

Nothing unusual about that schedule for a congressman who’s back working the district, but for Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), it was anything but typical. For starters, these weren’t his constituents. They were thousands of miles away, and these voters were almost the opposite of those he represents: In Chaffetz’s district, Mitt Romney got 78 percent of the vote in 2012.

Oversight Chairman Race: Jason Chaffetz Trying To Outwork Opponents

"I bet you’ve never heard of a food desert," Cummings says to Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who shakes his head no.

Baltimore and Provo are almost polar opposites, politically, racially, economically — and yet they are represented in Congress by two men likely to be the top leaders on a powerful House committee next year. Cummings, a black Democrat, speaks with the gusto of a pastor; Chaffetz, a white Republican, tosses red meat when he talks.

The Utahn is possibly the next chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the next Congress; Cummings is likely to remain the ranking Democrat.
