Crapo named chief deputy Senate majority whip

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo has been named chief deputy majority whip in the Senate for its upcoming session, a position similar to one he held in the last Congress, except that this time, his Republican Party is in the majority. Crapo said in a statement that he welcomes the chance to take the leadership role in the majority, which involves wrangling votes on legislation and serving as a liaison between leadership and rank-and-file members. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who is majority whip, said, “I’m grateful to have a strong team of friends and colleagues working with me as Republicans get the Senate back to work and address the top priorities of the American people.” You can read Crapo’s full announcement here.
