US congressman Joe Cunningham opens a beer, toasts bipartisanship

Having a beer at work on your last day might not be that unusual – unless you’re a US congressman.

Joe Cunningham used his Congress farewell speech to crack open a can of pale ale and make a toast to bipartisanship.

He called on people to come together for the country: “We have to sit down and listen to each other, maybe even have a beer.”

The Democrat from South Carolina lost his seat in the House of Representatives in the November election.
