Thune in line for top Commerce slot
from Roll Call News
Sen. John Thune of South Dakota appears likely to inherit the top-ranking Republican seat on the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee. Jim DeMint of South Carolina had been expected to assume that job when the new Congress convenes, but he announced he will leave Congress in January to head a conservative think tank. The top two Republicans on the panel currently - Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas and Olympia J. Snowe of Maine - are retiring.
