University of Kentucky Men’s Basketball Coach John Calipari made the rounds in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, posting photos of himself on the National Mall and with Kentucky legislators.

Coach Cal made stops to visit with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Kentucky Representatives Andy Barr and Hal Rogers, among others.

Cal said he was in Washington to support Kentuckian Kelly Knight Craft in her nomination for ambassador to Canada. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on the nomination Thursday.

On Thursday night, he tweeted from a dinner at the residence of Vice President Mike Pence.

When recruiting, John Calipari does not need to hype his history of producing NBA players. " That's just his swag," De'Aaron Fox said.
