'Campers Capitol' is a group of 50, mostly men and Republican US lawmakers that work and live in their offices. They are heirs to a tradition that was established in the mid 90s with the blessing of Newt Gingrich, then president of the House of Representatives. 'Waking up every morning in the office helps me remember that my home is not here but there, in my constituency,' says Walberg.
