Green Bay Packers fans are notoriously rabid wherever they go, and Capitol Hill is no exception. When the NFL season opened Thurday night with a game between the Packers and the New Orleans Saints, the Republican National Committee hosted a game-watching fundraiser in the American Legion building a few blocks away from RNC headquarters, inviting the entire congressional delegations from Wisconsin and Louisiana.

In the photo above, from left to right, are Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.), Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), Republican National Committee Chairman and former Wisconsin GOP chairman Reince Priebus, and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wisc.).
