Congressional Leaders on the Campaign Trail and Beyond — PICTURES

October 25, 2012

While some of their colleagues have to stay focused on their own tight races, congressional leaders have a little more leeway to hit the campaign trail for other candidates.

Here's a look at what leaders from both chambers have been up to during the campaign recess.
