The GOP House caucus is maybe facing a predicament. What if you gave a Committee chairmanship and nobody came? With the departure of House Intelligence Committee Chair Trey Gowdy, that position will be open after the mid-term elections. What is remarkable is that there are no takers at the present moment. Does that mean that there is no one interested? Are the interested parties laying back in the weeds to see what the competition will be? Does the possible turnover of the House leadership to the Democrats make this a job that would not be a good career choice? Who is interested, then?
