Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) stands a chance to take the Senate Armed Services Committee chairmanship if Republicans win the majority seats in the Senate, Breaking Defense reported Thursday.

McCain’s support for acquisition reform and cost reduction measures aligns with the efforts of Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-Texas), who could take the helm at the House Armed Services Committee, Colin Clark reports.

“Thornberry is pushing hard to build a new blueprint for Pentagon acquisition, working with Frank Kendall, the head of Pentagon acquisition,” Clark reports.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) is also well-positioned to become the chairman of the appropriations State and Foreign Operations subcommittee, according to the report.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), meanwhile, could take the chairmanship of the Environment and Public Works Committee, Breaking Defense reports.
