House Democrats officially tapped Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) to take former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-N.Y.) seat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Castor served on the panel in the last Congress, but lost her seat when Republicans took over the House. She is the most senior of the seven Democrats who lost their seats after the 2010 midterm elections.
Weiner resigned from Congress last week.
