Murtha death bad news for Northrop tanker bid
Leeham News thinks the death of U.S. Rep. John Murtha, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, could be bad news for Northrop Grumman in its bid to sell aerial tankers to the USAF.
Murtha had championed for a split-buy and with his death, Rep. Norm Dicks is likely to take over his post. Dicks supports the Boeing bid and opposes to a split-buy.
