ADG: Boozman to become GOP leader on ag panel

Written by Press Release

January 2, 2021

WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. John Boozman of Arkansas will be the top Republican on the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee this year.

If his party captures either or both of the Senate seats in Tuesday’s Georgia election runoffs, Boozman will wield the gavel. If Democrats win both contests and prevent President Donald Trump from overturning the electoral college vote, then U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., is expected to take the helm.

The Rogers optometrist would be the second Arkansan to serve as chairman; the first, Democrat Blanche Lincoln, lost her Senate seat to Boozman in 2010.

“We’ll have to wait and see what happens in Georgia, but it’s a great honor to be in that position, either as the chairman or the ranking member,” Boozman said in an interview.
