Race for Appropriations ranking member heats up
The race among Republicans for the top minority party slot on the powerful House Appropriations Committee is heating up.
Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) on Friday planned to announce that he is running for ranking member of the committee, which governs federal spending. Adherholt currently chairs the Appropriations Committee’s agriculture subcommittee in the outgoing Congress.
He will face tough competition from Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.), who leads the labor subcommittee, which deals with the largest of the nondefense bills.
Cole circulated a video to colleagues touting his success in getting the labor bill out of committee and working across the aisle.
