Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Neb.) is counting down to more than just Thanksgiving dinner. He is one week away from tying the knot with a senior adviser at the Aspen Institute who once worked briefly in Congress.
Andrea McDaniel has since held positions with the Brookings Institution and State Department, as well as the George W. Bush White House, but she got her start as a Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) intern in 1999. The two are set to marry Nov. 29, according to Smith's gift waiver disclosure request.
