Sept. 8 — Rep. Susan Davis (D-Calif.) is interested in taking the top Democrat position on the House Education and the Workforce Committee if it opens up next year, she told Bloomberg BNA.
“I would be honored to be considered for the ranking member position on the Education and the Workforce Committee,” Davis said via e-mail Sept. 8.
Rep. Bobby Scott (Va.), the panel’s current top Democrat, is considered the front-runner to fill vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine’s Senate seat if Kaine (D-Va.) and Hillary Clinton are elected to the White House in November. Davis is the next most senior Democrat on the committee among those expected to return to Congress next year.
Rep. Raul Grijalva (Ariz.), who is next in line behind Davis in seniority among committee Democrats, told Bloomberg BNA Sept. 7 that he won’t seek Scott’s position if it’s available next year.
Reps. Joe Courtney (Conn.) and Marcia Fudge (Ohio), the ranking Democrat on the Early Childhood, Elementary and Secondary Education subcommittee, are expected to consider making a run at the committee leadership role.
In the meantime, Davis said she has more pressing concerns. “Right now my focus is on finalizing our legislative year on the issues my constituents care most about,” she said.
Republicans are largely expected to retain control of the House following the November elections.
