Sen. Shelley Moore Capito’s granddaughter Celia made the rounds on Thursday for Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day in the Capitol.  

At a 9 a.m. markup in the Environment and Public Works Committee, the West Virginia Republican held six-year-old Celia on her lap the entire time. Around 15 minutes in, ranking member Sen. Barbara Boxer pointed out the young politician-in-training.
