The lobbyists bested the lawmakers once again at the 20th annual congressional basketball game on Tuesday night. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Sen. Ted Cruz were among the members on the team this year, joining Reps. Ryan A. Costello, Brad Wenstrup, Carlos Curbelo, and the sole Democrat and the team — freshman Conor Lamb. The score was 57-53. The game, played at George Washington University, raises money for at-risk-teens through the Hoops for Youth Foundation.
