Michelle Mittelstadt:

Congress is still engaging in the high-stakes derby of committee assignments, with lawmakers scrambling to get on the panels of their choice. And sometimes not necessarily of their choice.

Though Lampson's 22nd District isn't primarily a farming area, the Democratic leadership has assigned him to the Agriculture Committee, to go along with his postings on the Science and Technology Committee and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

"It's interesting because I don't have a big ag base," said Lampson, the grandson of Fort Bend County farmers.

First Lampson got passed over for Appropriations, now they're shuffling him to whatever committee has an opening.

Doesn't look like House Democrats have much confidence in Lampson being re-elected. I would've thought they'd at least pretend.
