Splitting time between two cities for work and home is daunting. Add to that working 24/7 for thousands of bosses. That's the life of a U.S. congressman as he works to balance his constituents' needs with his party's platform. Voice of America is following two first year U.S. lawmakers in our project "Climbing the Hill."
