Norton Celebrates Unanimous Senate Passage of Resolution Honoring Nationals World Series Win
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) celebrated the unanimous passage last night of a resolution in the Senate honoring the Washington Nationals for winning the first World Series in franchise history. The Nationals beat the Houston Astros in seven games, winning all four road games.
“In one word – history!” Norton said. “Congratulations to the Washington Nationals on this achievement and thank you to all the coaches, players, trainers, and especially fans who believed in our underdog team. Whether it’s the Capitals, the Mystics, or the Nationals – or the historic momentum for D.C. statehood – the District has been on a roll lately and has established itself as a true big-time sports city.”
Norton introduced the companion resolution in the House.
