In a race between two very good congressmen, U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana has defeated Rep. Tom Graves of Georgia to become the new chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the caucus of House conservatives. As a longtime observer of Scalise’s career, I wrote a column on the race about a month ago. Frankly, the RSC would have been in good hands either way — but in this case, I think its effectiveness legislatively will be even better. Scalise knows how to get things done.
This was a race in which there would not have been bad news no matter what. But Scalise’s election is very good news for the conservative movement.
