U.S. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, is no stranger to appearing in the media. But he seems to be delighting in his latest appearance in The Wall Street Journal.

Maine’s junior senator is the clue for 8 Down in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal crossword puzzle. You can see it for yourself here.

King noticed and tweeted that the three-letter answer was too short to be “devilishly handsome.” Twitter users had fun suggesting answers such as “hot” and “shy.”
