Bipartisan roommates at UIS

The president of the college Democrats and the chairman of the college Republicans at UIS are roommates.

Ryan Melchin, a republican and Matt VanVossen, a democrat, met during freshman year. They hit it off and have been friends ever since. The pair say they debate about politics all the time, but they do have common interests.

They hope to set an example for professional lawmakers.

The pair was featured by WCIA-TV Channel 3 in a report on April 1, 2010.
