With Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) poised to take the chairmanship of the Financial Services Committee when the Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) is seeking to become the committee’s ranking member

With Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) poised to take the chairmanship of the Financial Services Committee when the Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) is seeking to become the committee’s ranking member.
 
According to a report in The Hill, McHenry is the committee’s current vice chairman and would be next in line with the retirement of Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), the outgoing committee chairman. Two potential rivals for the ranking member spot, Reps. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-MO) and Bill Huizenga (R-MI), voiced their support for McHenry while a third possible challenger, Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK), opted to seek the ranking member position on the House Science Committee.
 
In announcing his intentions, McHenry also pledged to "fight back against any efforts by Democrats to use this committee to roll back our successes from the last two years or use the committee as the launch pad for endless, partisan investigations. The American people sent us here to get our work done. I intend to do that and I hope our Democrat colleagues share that commitment."
