Chasten Buttigieg and Doug Emhoff Hung Out on Capitol Hill Yesterday

Twitter freaked out accordingly.

Yesterday, blogger Tatsie Masters went on a stroll near the Hill and spotted some familiar faces: Doug Emhoff and Chasten Buttigieg, the spouses of Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, respectively.

The internet seemed excited by the prospect of these two powerful spouses developing a friendship.


The pair wound up grabbing refreshments at Wine and Butter, the market/cafe on Lincoln Park.
