I thought Murtha was supposed to win…

Guess not. Hoyer is new #2 in the House. Pelosi’s strong-arm tactics to pick “I wasn’t indicted” Murtha didn’t work. And it wasn’t even close: 149-86.

Didn’t Murtha just go on TV and say he had the votes to win? Oops.

From Yahoo:

Democrats picked Rep. Steny Hoyer (news, bio, voting record) to be House majority leader on Thursday, spurning Rep. Nancy Pelosi (news, bio, voting record)’s handpicked choice moments after unanimously backing her election as speaker when Congress convenes in January.
