Senate and Committee Leadership Positions for the Next Congress

The election on November 8th will set in motion numerous changes in Washington, especially for the next Congress.  The chart linked below identifies which Senators could occupy leadership posts and committee chairs or ranking member slots. There are many moving pieces, but we make two assumptions, which are not guaranteed: first, we assume that incumbent Senators will win re-election; and second, that sitting Senators will not serve in the next presidential administration.  Poking holes in either assumption isn’t hard given the tightness of many Senate races and the possibility that an incoming president may tap a Senator to serve in her/his cabinet. This chart will be updated as events unfold.
