North Dakota State Senator Ray Holmberg, New Hampshire, Rep. Dick Hinch, and more get COVID-19 in state capitals

Amid a massive surge of COVID-19 during the holiday season that pushed daily virus deaths this week beyond the total death toll from the September 11 terrorist attacks, lawmakers tasked with keeping their states afloat were getting sicker and sicker from the pandemic.

Lawmakers and staff were sickened – and one even died – in state capitals this week of North Dakota, South Dakota, New Hampshire and Indiana. In some cases, they may have felt compelled to continue working as a public health crisis ravaged their area.

In others, it was hard not to wonder what they were thinking.
