FILE - In this Sept. 27, 2012, file photo, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J, speaks in Sayreville, N.J. A harrowing nighttime flight over the African jungle and a wild search for a rebel leader helped forge a relationship between Menendez and Republican Rep. Ed Royce, two men standing at the forefront of Congress' changing guard on foreign policy. It was May 1997 and the lawmakers boarded a small plane to the African bush to plead with Jonas Savimbi, leader of UNITA, about ordering his forces to put down their arms and end the Angolan civil war. Nearly 16 years later, the two are together again, collaborating as the new chairmen of the respective Senate Foreign Relations and House Foreign Affairs committees.(AP Photo/Mel Evans, File)
