CQ Roll Call hit the road this recess week — to Arizona to be precise. With its Aug. 2 primary fast approaching, the Grand Canyon State hosted a number of Fourth of July-themed rallies and events and CQ Roll Call’s photojournalists were there to capture some of the patriotic politicking. And despite Congress being away, their lenses still kept a focus on Washington and some of the happenings there.
