(Politico) House Majority Whip Steve Scalise on Wednesday defended the GOP’s lack of women lawmakers as committee chairs in the new Congress. SCALISE: “Obviously, we have a number of other women that are very talented as part of our conference leadership. But if you look at this new class, especially, such a great, new, diverse group of members, with great backgrounds, too. And they’re going to come and, I think, and give us a really strong boost in the new Congress."
