No. 3 for McMorris Rodgers will be a first

U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and her husband Brian Rodgers are expecting their third baby in December.

A reader called to ask if that will make the Eastern Washington Republican the first member of Congress to have a third child while in office. We suspected so, because she was the first member of Congress to have a second child while in office in 2010.

But you never know about members of Congress, so we checked with her staff just to make sure. They say she will be the first to have a third child while in Congress.
