BREAKING: Grijalva Gets Just Enough Votes To Stay In Battle For Key Natural Resources Committee Position, Final Vote Tomorrow

This afternoon, Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-CD3) got 16 votes  from the Democrats' Steering and Policy Committee for the Ranking Member position on the Natural Resources Committee.  That was  just enough to force a vote in the entire Democratic House Caucus tomorrow (12pm, AZ Time).

The 52-member SPC voted 33-16 to endorse Oregon Rep. Peter DeFazio;  Grijalva needed at least 14 votes to bring it to the caucus.  The two Congressmen are competing to replace Rep.-turned-Sen. Edward Markey.

Here is a link to the Roll Call article.  Arizona's Politics posted this article on Monday about the environmental battle.
