Bipartisan Seating at State of the Union

Left, Right, Left, Right: We wanted to know if the Iowa delegation would follow the wishes of those who wanted to avoid the usual...one party stands up clapping wildly while the other sits on its hands as the president gives the state of the union. Here's what we heard back from the offices that responded to our inquiries:

Republican Senator Chuck Grassley sat with Oregon Democratic Senator Ron Wyden
3rd District Democratic Congressman sat with Texas Republican Congressman Mike Conaway
4th District Republican Congressman sat with Minnesota Democratic Congressman Collin Peterson
5th District Republican Congressman said he just wanted to get a seat.
