At her debut appearance on Capitol Hill today, Angle zigged and zagged her way through private corridors and through side doors to avoid taking even perfunctory questions from waiting reporters.
This afternoon, as nearly a dozen reporters stood in wait, Angle attended the Republicans' weekly policy luncheon--a common tradition in both parties after primary victors and other hopefuls enter the general election. When it was over, though, and Angle was ready to leave, she didn't exactly welcome press attention. Rather she took a back door out of the dining room, through the waiting room outside the Senate chamber into a reception area, which reporters are forbidden from entering. From there she took a senators only staircase down to the first floor of the Capitol toward a side exit on the building's north face. That's where the pack caught up with her and peppered her with questions, which she almost entirely ignored as she weaved her way east toward the driveway, and into her car to safety.
