CNN White House correspondent Ed Henry has won election as the next president of the White House Correspondents Association, FishbowlDC reports. Henry got a whopping 186 votes of the 243 ballots cast (three were ruled invalid. Dangling chads maybe?)
Henry also won the Association’s television seat with 198 votes. This is for the 2012-2013 term.
One of the issues the WHCA has not yet resolved is who gets Helen Thomas’ front row briefing room seat. Both Fox News Channel and Bloomberg News are vying for the seat. As TVNewser reported last month, Henry is going to support Fox News for the seat.
