"I will go to Washington and fight for you," that was Jeff Landry on Election night earlier this month-- after a landslide victory in the 3rd congressional district, Landry now finds himself in the nation's capitol.
"The weather here is beautiful."
Landry and all newcomers are staying at the L'enfant Plaza Hotel--minutes away from Capitol Hill.
Landry says one thing on his list this week is finding an apartment for when congress is in session.
"Thats why I brought the boss. I am traveling with my wife. This week she'll go out and explore the city with some people we know from this area."
Tonight the new majority leader John Boehner hosted the freshmen representatives for a dinner party in the Capitol Dome, come tomorrow it's a series of classes and lectures:
"From looking at the schedule it looks like a real thorough orientation that covers the does and don'ts of the house with plenty of time to explore the various offices and complexes of the capitol," Landry said.
