Stephen Ryan called the House Energy and Commerce Committee “probably one of the three most important committees in the sense of traditional analysis of where people want to be.” In assessing the efforts of two House members seeking to land the top Democratic spot on the Committee, Mr. Ryan said that “a member’s track record with their colleagues of caring about them and being their friend is way more important” for selection, and that “both of these people have friends throughout the House on both sides of the aisle.”
