McHugh Wins House Armed Services Post

Rep. John McHugh of New York won the House Republican Steering Committee’s nod to become the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, replacing retiring Rep. Duncan Hunter of California, GOP aides say.

McHugh was chosen over fellow committee members Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland and Mac Thornberry of Texas.

The full House Republican Conference was expected to follow suit and make the steering committee’s recommendation official.
