The guy in the yellow collared shirt, second from the right in the third row may be Pete Stauber (R-MN-08). I don't see any other reps from Minnesota and we have 4 more freshman this year besides Stauber (Omar, Craig, Phillips and Hagedorn).

Second row from bottom, I believe 3rd from left is Sean Casten Il-6, same row 3rd from right may be Sharice Davids from KS-3.

Yes, I believe jacy is correct about Sean Casten. In the back row, the gentleman fourth from the right looks like Brad Schneider (IL-10).

3rd from right may be Sharice Davids from KS-3

pretty certain that is correct.

Back row (or second to back row, depending on how youre counting) older bearded bespectacled, bald white dude in the blue shirt is Ted Deutch (FL-22).

Behind Deutch in the jacket-no-tie is, i am fairly certain, Antonio Delgado, from upstate New Y ork.

The Asian man towards the back on the left with glasses and in the pink shirt/ dark jacket is Andy Kim, NJ-03. He's the Democrat that beat Tom MacArthur, the Republican architect of the awful MacArthur amendment that would have gutted the ACA.

The white woman second-to-the-left in the second-to-the-front row (half hidden, short blonde hair) is Chrissy Houlahan, a first-term Democrat from PA-06.

99 percent sure the brunette woman behind Kevin McCarthy is Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.).

Third row middle-ish blond man in the jacket next to the bald man is Mike Levin from Orange County / San Diego, California 49th district who took Darrell Issa’s longtime seat!
