Bipartisan Band of Brothers: The West Point Graduates Coming to Congress

From a story on by Jordain Carney and Olivia Beavers headlined ‘Bipartisan band of brothers: The West Point grads coming to Congress”:

When John James and Pat Ryan reconnected on the sidelines of an Army football game in 2019, they were two old West Point classmates with night-and-day political identities in a similar predicament: Both had just lost congressional bids.

Three years later, the former Cadet company buddies’ fates have shifted — both will be House members next year. And as the chamber starts a new Congress more closely divided than ever, both in head count and in spirit, James and Ryan’s relationship promises to forge a needed bipartisan bridge over toxic partisan divides.
