WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-CA) announced his intention to run to become the top Republican member on the House Armed Services Committee.

The announcement follows President Obama's appointment of the current ranking member, Rep. John McHugh (R-NY), as Secretary of the Army.

"After 14 years on the House Armed Services Committee and three years as the leading Republican on the Education & Labor Committee, I've decided to submit my name for the House Armed Services ranking member position," McKeon said in a statement.

"The coming years are poised for tough challenges for our men and women in uniform and I stand ready to lead as a strong voice for Republicans," he said.

"I'm looking forward to discussing my bid in the coming days with my fellow Republican colleagues," he said.
