Here's What The Democrats Ate Last Night

The House Democrats' sit-in for gun control bills (live-streamed from their cellphones here) continued through last night and garnered large quantities of food donations from supporters across the country.

Here's what they ate while the Republicans headed home early for break:

A buffet was laid out in the cloakroom, which lawmakers gladly stood up to eat.

Several boxes of pizza were delivered, courtesy of a Sandy Hook victim's mother (for $344) and Senator Ron Wyden himself.

Senator Elizabeth Warren made sure the House Democrats were taken care of, bringing a few boxes from Dunkin' Donuts to the sit-in.

Supporters from Hawaii sent macadamia nuts, chips, candy, and beef jerky with Senator Mazie Hirono.

Democrats holed up on the House floor were also treated to Blueberry Pop-Tarts, Pepsi and Mountain Dew, and some apples.

Representative John Yarmuth (KY-3) appreciated the efforts of his constituents to make sure he was properly fed.

Information regarding the leftover food has not been released.
