Members of Congress took to Twitter Saturday to celebrate small businesses in their district as part of “Small Business Saturday,” an effort to get shoppers to support local businesses.

 

While many are encouraging their followers to go out and shop local on Saturday, a few are doing so themselves and posting to the social media site to prove it.
