Some congressional aides you might see at Tortilla Coast include: Hannah Kim (Rep. Charles Rangel [D-N.Y.]), Sarah Lovenheim (Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidNo GOP leaders attending Shimon Peres funeral Overnight Regulation: Feds finalize rule expanding sick leave Anti-trade senators say chamber would be crazy to pass TPP MORE [D-Nev.]), Rob Runyan (Sen.
