A bipartisan luncheon for women serving in the U.S. Senate was hosted by Vice President Kamala Harris on Tuesday. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, one of the most powerful people in the Senate, was seated just to the vice president’s left at Number One Observatory Circle, the official residence of the Vice President of the United States. Sen. Patty Murray, a Democrat from Washington State, was seated at Vice President Harris’ right.
“Continuing our tradition of having a bipartisan, women Senators’ dinner. Thanks to the Vice President for hosting tonight,” Murkowski posted on Twitter.
Harris invited all 24 women senators — 16 Democrats and 8 Republicans.
The senators were served a summer garden tower salad with hearts of palm, paired with a Simple Life Rose wine; roasted mahi-mahi, grilled vegetables and basmati rice, paired with a Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc; and for dessert, strawberry rhubarb croustades, and vanilla ice cream, according to the menu that was posted on Twitter by Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska.
