Ben Cline, the newly elected House of Representatives member representing Virginia, drew #1 in the lottery that all 85 new members participated in for offices.
As soon as Congressman-elect Cline drew the number, he smiled and gave a thumbs up to the crowd as they cheered. Drawing #1 means he will get a pretty good office.
Number 85 was drawn by Congressman-elect Republican Mark Green of Tennessee. This means he will likely end up with a tiny office on the top floor of the Cannon office building, about as far from the House floor as possible. He gave a bow to the crowd after they cheered for him as well.
Green has been elected president of the freshman class of Republicans.
