WASHINGTON (AP) - Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns is abandoning his
doublewide trailer for a proper Senate office.
Johanns has been using the trailer as his office since being
sworn in early this year. It's parked in the courtyard of the
Russell Senate Office Building. Now, he's getting an office inside
Senate office space is allocated based on seniority, and Johanns
is a freshman senator - he replaced fellow Republican Chuck Hagel,
who didn't seek a third term.
Johanns will move into the new space Wednesday after nearly
three months in the trailer. He said the trailer was cramped and it
was easy to hear through the walls.
