Mario Diaz-Balart to whip up support for the GOP

Miami Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart has been named an assistant whip on the GOP House team, responsible for making sure members tow the party line.

House Republican Whip Rep. Roy Blunt called Diaz-Balart an "excellent addition to the Whip team.

"I look forward to working with him every day to move the Repubican agenda forward in the House," Blunt said.

That job got harder in November when Democrats took control, but Diaz-Balart said he looks foward "to helping advance legislation that benefits this great country."
