Van Hollen Waits With Other Voters

At Temple Emanuel in Kensington, Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D) stood in line for 40 minutes with the rest of his consituents, who offered to let him jump ahead.

"There's no way I'm jumping the line," he said, preferring to talk with voters in Maryland's 8th Congressional District and answer their questions.

With the line snaking through the hallway of the temple, Van Hollen worried he would miss the beginning of a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee luncheon. As chairman of that group this election cycle, Van Hollen helped raise money for Democratic House candidates across the nation. He said he was trying to stay conservative in his prediction of picking up 15 House seats, and at least four in the Senate.
