The House Republican Conference, Speaker John Boehner and New Jersey Rep. Rush Holt (D) are putting aside partisanship briefly to recognize slain U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

Holt started a condolence book for Stevens’ family that will make its way to the Democratic and Republican cloakrooms this week.

The Speaker’s office has helped facilitate the book making the rounds to Members of Congress.

“Members are encouraged to sign a book of condolences for the family of Ambassador Chris Stevens,” the Republican Conference wrote in an email to Members today. “The book will be located in the Republican cloakroom, and Members will be able to sign the book through tomorrow’s final voting series.
