Date night at the Capitol: Who's sitting with whom?

The idea has gathered steam over the past few days, and members joked about their “dates” for the evening.

But not all of them have someone to sit with.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) joked he got dumped.

"I don't have a date [for the State of the Union]. I got dumped," Van Hollen told The Hill on Monday. Van Hollen's originally planned to go with Rep. Paul RyanPaul RyanThe Hill Interview: Budget Chair Black sticks around for now Gun proposal picks up GOP support GOP lawmaker Tim Murphy to retire at end of term MORE (R-Wis.) but now Ryan is giving the Republican response to the speech.

"Looks like I'm going stag. Maybe I'll look for another date," Van Hollen said with smile and a good-natured laugh.

Rep. Michele BachmannMichele Marie BachmannTom Petty dies at 66 Bachmann: Muslim immigrants trying to undermine Western civilization Religious leaders pray over Trump in Oval Office MORE (R.-Minn.) has not been asked to sit with any Democrats yet. "I am a free agent," she said.

“So I don't have a date to SOTU. Oh, how it is to be the ugly conservative,” Chaffetz tweeted Monday.

Later he joked: “Perhaps the First Lady needs a date?”

Second-term Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.), who starred in a 2009 CNN series with Chaffetz about congressional freshmen, tweeted they could sit together:

“I'll be sitting with the R & D CO delegation, but u can join us, UT is a neighboring state!” he wrote.

As of Tuesday morning, Chaffetz hadn’t revealed his seating plans.

But several other lawmakers have. The Hill has compiled a list of who will be sitting with whom, using Twitter, news accounts and interviews.
