U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, who represents South Carolina's 6th Congressional District, tweeted a wedding photo as a tribute to his wife on Tuesday, catching the eye of the staff at USA Today, which featured the tweet on its OnPolitics blog.
Clyburn, who is running for reelection in November, is the House's assistant Democratic leader. He met his wife, Emily, after he and other college students were jailed for civil disobedience, the USA Today story says. Clyburn's tweet says his wife helps him fight for women's rights and equal pay.
