Warren Gets Seat on Senate Banking Committee: Reports
Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has been selected by party leadership to join the Senate Banking Committee next year, according to Tuesday reports in Politico and the Huffington Post.
The caucus must still approve the committee makeup for the next Congress; Warren will fill one of two open Democratic positions following the retirements of Sens. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) and Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii). Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is expected to fill the other position.
