Answers for Morning Political Trivia for July 13

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


We didn’t get many bites on today’s morning political trivia, but here’s the answer anyway: The two current Senators who served as congressional pages are Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) and Mark Pryor (D-Ark.). No one guessed this — we’ll try something a little easier for tomorrow. CQ Politics has more on the subject of former pages in congress. Unsurprisingly, both Dodd and Pryor served as pages during their fathers’ tenures in congress. Check back tomorrow for more trivia.
