House Freedom Caucus Transforms to Better Fight Liberal Dems
The Daily Caller's Henry Rodgers reports:
The caucus, whose mission statement is to “give a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them,” elected three members in 2019 to fill new positions created by the caucus in 2019. Ohio Republican Rep. Warren Davidson will serve as policy chair for the Caucus. Georgia Republican Rep. Jody Hice will serve as communications chair and Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Scott Perry will serve as Caucus whip.
“I am deeply honored that my friends and colleagues have selected me to serve as the first Communications Chair of the House Freedom Caucus. As a former radio host, I am looking forward to lifting the forgotten voices of the American people and driving a conservative narrative in support of fiscal discipline, limited government, and traditional values, all with the ultimate goal of Republicans retaking the House majority,” Hice told TheDCNF Friday.
“This is especially important given the efforts of the radical left to make us a socialist country. I look forward to contrasting our message to theirs, and I am humbled by the opportunity to move our cause and our Caucus forward into the 116th Congress,” Hice continued.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows praised the three congressmen on being elected to their new positions on the caucus, saying he believes they will help with upcoming debates, as the House lost control to Democrats after the 2018 midterm elections.
Inside sources on Capitol Hill regard Davidson, Hice, and Perry as Republican rising stars widely expected to lead the conservative movement one day.
