Boehner Promises Armed Services Seat to Skelton Opponent

By Tricia Miller, Roll Call Staff Oct. 13, 2010, 3:32 p.m. EST

Minority Leader John Boehner has promised that Missouri Republican Vicky Hartzler will get a seat on the Armed Services Committee if she wins and Republicans take control of the House.

Hartzler is a former state Representative who is running against Armed Services Chairman Ike Skelton in southwest Missouri. With the Army’s Fort Leonard Wood and Whiteman Air Force Base in the district, military issues have defined the race.

Hartzler isn’t the first House candidate promised a committee seat by Boehner....

...Hawaii Rep. Charles Djou may be getting the biggest prize: Boehner said Djou will get a seat on the Appropriations Committee if he wins re-election next month after winning the special election in May to replace Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D). Hawaii Sen. Daniel Inouye (D) chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, so the appointment would give the island state an outsized influence on Appropriations.
