Sen. Hatch gets called for jury duty

Sen. Orrin Hatch's (R) return to his home state of Utah during the congressional recess included an unexpected stop. 

Hatch was selected for jury duty, he tweeted Monday:

I'll be speaking to the students in Dan Jones' #UofU class this morning then off to Jury Duty. Do you think I'll be chosen? #utpol

Hatch isn't the first high-profile federal official to be called for jury duty this year. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan was spotted in a pool of potential jurors in a Washington, D.C., Superior Court in January.
