Murray Tapped for “Super Committee”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to tap Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) to serve as the co-chair of the deficit reduction super committee, which was created through the debt legislation approved last week.  According to Democratic sources, the other two picks for the Senate Democrats will be Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) and John Kerry (D-MA).
