    I think it's a cross-over. Congressman <X> as a title refers to a house member, but as there's NOT really a word shorter than "Members of congress" congressman/people also works for the generic whole.
    My point was that Starlight didn't seem to know he was a Senator, since he was talking about "200 other congresspersons"

      He might be stepping down as committee chair but still says he's not resigning in spite of calls from many Democrats to do so, and apparently will be announcing he's running for reelection. A couple Democrats have already announced they will oppose him in the primary.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        I knew he was a Senator. It's in the thread title and also multiple times in the OP. I was using congresspersons in the wider sense of members of congress, which includes both the House and the Senate and has 535 total members. Maybe don't pointlessly nitpick?
