Rep. Rod­ney Frel­inghuysen (R) “had yet to see a bill signed in­to law as the new chair­man of the House Ap­pro­pri­ations Com­mit­tee, but he was already apo­lo­giz­ing to his col­leagues.” Last week, “Frel­inghuysen apo­lo­gized to his col­leagues for his pub­lic and ill-timed dis­missal of Re­pub­lic­ans’ health care re­write the week pri­or.”

Rep. Robert Ad­er­holt (R-AL 04): “He’s in a very dif­fi­cult situ­ation with his dis­trict, no doubt, be­cause his dis­trict is more out of sync with the rest of the con­fer­en­ce.” (Na­tion­al Journ­al)
