John Ensign Is No Longer the Third-Ranking Republican in the Senate « The Washington Independent
UPDATE: I’m hearing that Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), a rising star who’s expected to sail to re-election next year, is being tipped as a possible replacement for Ensign. He’s generally seen as one of the best TV performers in the GOP Senate conference, and has taken the lead on matters like, most recently, an “exit strategy” from TARP.
