There’s a new president of the White House Correspondents Association, reports TVNewser.com

CNN White House correspondent Ed Henry was the runaway winner in an election held by the organization, receiving186 votes out of 243 ballots cast, the story reports.

One issue the organization must settle is who will inherit the front-row seat in the briefing room that had been occupied by Helen Thomas, the longtime White House correspondent who retired last month. Fox News Channel and Bloomberg News are said to be competing for the choice seat, with Henry having indicated he would support Fox, according to the TVNewser story.
