News Roundup: House Members' Tweets Violated Rules?

Good Friday morning, everyone. Here's what we're reading:

Many of Rep. Paul Ryan's colleagues in the House were quite excited with him being chosen as Mitt Romney's running mate. Perhaps a little too excited. Some may have violated House and Senate rules preventing them from campaigning by tweeting on official accounts, Roll Call  reports. Many of those tweets have since been deleted.

The 12 Democratic women running for Senate seats have out-raised their opponents, $110 million to $42 million, thanks in large part to liberal donors and a surge in pro-choice groups' fundraising, Politico reports.

And NPR looks into the history of just how the Congressional Cemetery got its name, starting with the burial of Connecticut Sen. Uriah Tracey in 1807. He was one of the first to fight in the Revolutionary War and later tried to secede from the Union.
