Washington Lawmaker Tapped to Co-Chair "Super Committee"


A northwest lawmaker has been named to the super committee. Yesterday Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced Tuesday he's naming Senator Patty Murray to co-chair a powerful "Super Committee" charged with finding more than $1 trillion in deficit cuts this fall. Political analyst Jim Moore says Murray was chosen for her ability to work across party lines and he had predicted her selection for several reasons. "She is the Chair of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, so her job for the next few years is to raise a lot of money so that Democrats can increase their majority in the Senate.” Reid says Murray has a depth of knowledge on budget issues and demonstrated her ability to work across party lines.
