  •  Precedent for both members on a Committee (2+ / 0-)

    It is unusual but not unheard of for both members from a state to serve on the same committee.

    Coleman and Klobuchar both served on the Agriculture Committee in the 110th Congress, as did Grassley and Harkin from Iowa.

    There is even precedent for both members from a state who are both of the same party serving on the Committee.  Mark Dayton and Paul Wellstone served on the Agriculture Committee at one point, as did Tom Daschle and Tim Johnson from South Dakota.

    •  And if I'm not mistaken, Harkin pledged a seat (0+ / 0-)

      on Ag to Franken during the campaign.
