The Senate Candy Desk

Thanks to Betsy's Page, I learned about a fun Capitol Hill tradition, the Senate Candy Desk.

The Candy Desk originated with former California Senator George Murphy, who kept a supply of sweets in his desk. In the decades since Senator Murphy left the Senate, Republican Senators have continued the tradition, most recently Senator Rick Santorum. Senator Santorum filled the desk with the help of the Hershey Company from his state of Pennsylvania.

Senator Craig Thomas of Wyoming appears to be next in line to man the desk.
