Himes is one of the Democratic lawmakers on this year’s 50 Most Beautiful People List, published by The Hill Wednesday morning. Rep. Bobby ScottRobert (Bobby) Cortez ScottCBO: Pelosi bill to lower drug prices saves Medicare 5 billion Democrats divided on surprise medical bill fix NYC teacher suing DeVos over student loan forgiveness program MORE (D-Va.) is also on the list.

It's not uncommon to see the two congressmen, who represent neighboring districts, banter on Twitter. True to form, Himes was quick with a reply:

The Hill can't confirm if Himes is taller than Murphy, but the latter does indeed have the advantage of youth. At 38, he'll be one of the youngest members in the Senate if he successfully wins the state’s Democratic primary and general election to replace retiring Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) in the fall.

Then again, Himes, who modeled in college, looks pretty good for his age. As The Hill reported last year, the 46-year-old is still getting carded by restaurants.
