South Florida's members of Congress were on hand at the White House on Tuesday, as President Barack Obama hosted the 2013 NBA championship team Miami Heat.
Spotted in the audience on the White House video stream were several members of Congress from Broward and Palm Beach counties: U.S. Reps. Ted Deutch, Lois Frankel, Patrick Murphy, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Frederica Wilson. Also Miami-Dade's Joe Garcia.

Noting the bipartisan support for the team, Obama said "nothing brings people together like the Miami Heat."
