King, Kaine, Donnelly to join Armed Services panel

The Veterans Affairs Committee will be getting a new chairman next year as well, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) taking over the panel after Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) moves to the Budget Committee.

Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) are joining the committee that handles veterans’ issues on the Democratic side.

Republicans have not yet announced their committee rosters.
