House Leadership Developments

Email Email Print

Rep. John Sweeney, R-N.Y., is drafting a petition calling for elections for several junior leadership posts. Every position but Hastert’s would be at stake.

An AP story from late last night reports on a failed attempt by pro-Blunt Members to push the date forward for voting on the Majority Leader post, a move that suggests that the exploratory calls by Arizona’s Shadegg have spooked the front runners. The inability to get the date advanced may well have the effect of triggering additional candidacies. I will have The National Review’s Rich Lowrey on the program today to discuss the leadership scramble.

The AP report also notes that Congressman Dan Lungren is playing a role in the reform movement. The former, eight-year Attorney General of California returned to the House after a failed run for the govenorship, and he carries not only broad experience outside of the House, but also a well-deserved reputation for integrity. Lungren’s experience as a state’s top prosecutor should be listened to very carefully inside the Conference.
