GOP three plan a jobs carve-up

GOP three plan a jobs carve-up: "Three powerful Senate Republicans are planning to reallocate some of the tasks assigned to the leadership posts they hope to win at the start of the next Congress.

During talks last week that produced a deal in which none of the three would challenge either of the others for their allotted rungs of the leadership ladder, Sens. Jon Kyl (Ariz.), Kay Bailey Hutchison (Texas) and John Ensign (Nev.) discussed how three leadership job descriptions might be adjusted.

Republican sources offer conflicting accounts of what role each senator would play. None of the participants concedes that his or her responsibilities would be diminished.

It is expected that Hutchison, the current party vice chairwoman, would play an increased role in communicating the GOP message, despite running to head the GOP Policy Committee, which has hitherto focused on producing detailed position papers on a range of issues."
