Following up on Mark’s post yesterday on the Coup Caucus, I decided to do a little digging to see what other foreign entities (and global issues) U.S. Representatives felt needed a good caucusing. My list can be found after the jump, as can some larger maps. The most glaring ommission in my mind: Italy.  The Italian Embassy in D.C. is quite nice and frequently throws parties, if you know what I’m saying.

* denotes representation on the map. As most of these Caucuses don’t maintain a website. I had to do some guessing work on some of the regions. And, no, I’m not being lazy. The vast majority don’t maintain Web sites.
