Rep. Wilson travels to Israel

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) is embarking on an eight-day trip to Israel.

The congresswoman, known for her extensive collection of hats, may be in for a cozy flight - she left for the trip on Sunday with a group of more than 25 House Democratic colleagues. 

Wilson said in a statement, "I'm thrilled to visit Israel for the first time to learn first-hand about one of our closest friends and allies."

No word how much headwear Wilson was able to pack in her suitcases.
