The E&C race begins

The race for the chairmanship of the House Energy and Commerce Committee is on.

Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.), the favorite to chair the panel if Republicans are still in the majority, is hosting a dinner that a source billed as a “kick off” to his campaign for the powerful gavel.
