Ladies’ Night: Dem. female senators head to Baltimore

If you looked out an office window on the Senate side Monday night after the upper chamber finished voting, you might have caught a glimpse of what Sen. Barbara Mikulski’s (D-Md.) campaign office calls the Super Senator Shuttle, bound for Baltimore and loaded with Democratic female senators.

That’s because Mikulski, often called the “dean” of the Senate ladies, was transporting the sisterhood of the traveling pantsuits, as it is sometimes jokingly known, to the Baltimore Hilton for a special fundraiser she hosts every six years, at which her fellow female members sing her praises at an event her campaign told ITK honors “the great women that lead the efforts of Maryland, and the great men who stand behind them.”

Scheduled to hop a ride on the Super Senator Shuttle with Mikulski at press time were Sens. Maria Cantwell (Wash.), Kay Hagan (N.C.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Mary Landrieu (La.), Patty Murray (Wash.), Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.) and Debbie Stabenow (Mich.). Can you pick them out in the photo above?

As for whether Mikulski will repay the favor, her spokeswoman Simone Ward said she’s willing to campaign for anyone who asks her to.
