Twelve of the major House committees will be chaired by men in the 113th Congress, the House Republican Steering Committee announced on Tuesday, as reported by Politico:
After a day of meetings closed to the public, the House Republican Steering Committee announced an all-male slate of committee chairs, including 12 returning lawmakers who will head up some of the most important panels in Washington. The chairmen for the House Ethics Committee and House Administration Committee have yet to be chosen, so a woman could end up in one of those slots.
"Is anyone really surprised?" the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Tweeted, following the report.
