WASHINGTON (CNN) – Illinois Republican Rep. Aaron Schock is hoping a recent magazine profile will help him in Washington's bustling social scene.
"'There's no line of young ladies at my door every morning,'" the 27-year-old congressman told Details in an interview for the magazine's May issue. But, "'[m]aybe when they read my Details profile . . .'" Schock added.
The young Republican has come from nowhere to become a rising star in the GOP in just a few months since becoming the youngest member of the 111th Congress.
Schock was voted "hottest freshman" by the readers of the liberal Huffington Post Web site. He was also showered with attention by President Obama, who was hoping to win the young congressman's vote for his $787 billion stimulus plan. (The freshman Republican hopped a ride on Air Force One with the commander-in-chief and attended a presidential town-hall-style event in Peoria, Illinois, but ultimately voted against the bill.)
And Meghan McCain, daughter of former Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, recently showered praise on Schock, suggesting that the young conservative might be the future of the GOP and calling him a "congressman-turned-TMZ hottie."

With all that attention, the spotlight was inevitably bound to turn to his personal life – a subject he discussed with Details. "He's the only one of his siblings not married with children, and is similarly an outlier among friends," the profile says. "'I had a group of fix or six guys, and we hung and traveled – ski trips and stuff,'" Shock told the magazine. "'They slowly got picked off – married, married, married.'"
There is apparently so much pressure on the young, successful congressman to settle down, that his longtime friends are trying not to add to it, according to the magazine.
While he settles into life in Washington, the bachelor is keeping himself busy with lots of time at the House gym. Schock told the magazine he also enjoys listening to music – "'everything from Keith Urban to Justin Timberlake to Rihanna.'"
There's a 800 lb. gorilla in the room...he's another obstructionist member of the "party of nope"; no new ideas, just political partisanship. Makes him alot less attractive, doesn't it?
First of all he won't be eligible to run for President until 2020 since he won't turn 35 until at least this day in 2017 also it's not like he has alot of competition regarding looks he is pretty average looking.
Republicans and their gimmicks...
WIth the way liberal Democrats are acting these days, check out UNC for example, I would suggest he hire his own PRIVATE security force. After what Obama's DHS said, they would like nothing more than to see this young congressman taken out. All you have to do is see how libs act and listen to what they say. Their own words and actions are what they are, yet libs here will still attack anyone who simply tells the truth.
What a waste of taxpayer dollars...a Senator worried about his social life!
He is another typical Republican more concerned with the media and people falling at his feet than doing an honest day's work...SOLVING THE ECONOMIC PROBLEMS!
Wow our society is shallow. I bet the readers of TMZ didnt give a rip about his voting record or what his political stances were either?
Young man – no decent lady wants ANYTHING to do with the right-wing these days. Smells too much like hate, divisiveness, and war on the middle class and poor.
thats because no amount of good looks can cover retarded rush limbaugh party thinking
Who cares!!! He is there to do a job that's it!!!! Just another REPUB with no ideals THIS IS NOT NEWS!!!!
I wonder if he knows you can see Russia from Alaska.
Look for a nice young Democrat rather than an Republican, they are more fun on a date anyway.
He's a one term guy – and a republican – what else can I say!

Wait a minute! This is bound to enrage the liberals. Much as Sarah Palin (a conservative WOMAN!)
Frankly, I don't know enough about Schock to decide either way. All I see is that TMZ and the GOP are betting an awful lot on his youth and his looks...and ‘liberals’ were not enraged by Palin because she was a “WOMAN!”…just take a look at her slack jaw white trailer trash supporters for a glimpse why she was crushed. People opposed her because she was less intelligent than a potted plant.
Gee if he is the best hottie the GOP has it just shows the lengths they will go to to try to be something. He looks like the wimpest of wimps to me.....very feminine. Take it from an old woman who has seen em all. And I mean real men and real "hunks".
I think "pretty boy" picked the wrong party....the Republicans hate his kind.
If he needs TMZ to make him desirable, he's strictly showbiz and not 'for the people'. Please stop it CNN....He's not that cute, and 'hot' is relative.
President Obama is popular and loved for his character and persona. He didn't need TMZ or a PR firm to get him noticed. No one else will ever come close. He's a once in a lifetime phenomenon.
He's a Republican gimmick!
The liberal rag called the Huffington Post labled the guy.
Yet half the people here are calling out Republicans... can you people read?
He's the Republican Obama...for better or worse!
Is the line of young women in the morning coming or going?
Isn't this the same party that got angry about Obama spending time overseas because of the economic problems in America? Instead of hearing about a congressman's love life, maybe we can hear his ideas for fixing the economic problems. In future interviews, maybe that can be his focus.
He needs to be judged by his body of work (which is very small) not by his body..................................Let's keep our senses and monitor his work habits, views and policies.......not the TMZ website
No women lined up at his door leaves only one group that is......ahem!
Can you imagine this guy and Sarah Palin trying to share a mirror with all that ego going on?!?!?! I'd sell tix!!!
What a schmock!!! The GOP is so uncreative. Now they are trying to sell male sex to get attention? Selling sex can only go so far especially from an outdated political party who ruined the lives of the American people with 2 wars and a recession.
The only people reading "Details" magazine are gay guys and metrosexuals....so if the "hottie" republican is waiting for a bunch of women to line up outside his door he was talking to the wrong magazine.
He may be cute at first glance, but the fact that he's a republican..who has proven that he's not above the politics of division that republicans love so much....drops his rating way down.
