Boehner Promises GA Republicans Committee Posts if GOP Take House

Politico reports on Minority Leader John Boehner’s appearances in South Georgia this week.

House Minority Leader John Boehner promised two Republican candidates choice committee spots this week.

Boehner, speaking Tuesday in Centerville, Ga., said he would commit “to do everything I can to make sure” Austin Scott, the Republican running against Rep. Jim Marshall (D-Ga.), gets a spot on the Armed Services committee, according to a video posted on a local news source’s website.

Mike Keown, the Republican running against Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.), said Tuesday that the Ohio Republican committed to him a seat on the Agriculture committee.

“We will have a seat at the table and with a Republican majority, we’ll have a strong voice as we address farm issues,” Keown said, according to the local Fox affiliate.
