The influential House Freedom Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives has once again voted in another chairman, Rep. Andy Biggs (R) of Arizona. The group of conservative-minded legislators has helped guide a fiscally responsible government narrative since it first came into existence.
Freedom Caucus members have also been the first line of defense against Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic majority since 2018.
Biggs picks up where Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) left off, and will serve a President Trump’s new go-to man in the House of Representatives. Meadows is acting chairman until October 1st and will stay on the group’s board.
“I’m grateful for the trust of my colleagues in selecting me to serve as the next chairman of the House Freedom Caucus,” said Chairman-elect Biggs. “The Freedom Caucus has revolutionized Capitol Hill because our members endeavor to keep our promises to the American people. Freedom Caucus members have shown that they will stand for principle over politics—every time. The House Freedom Caucus has created a national reputation by standing up for Americans who have felt that they didn’t have a voice in Congress. Great leaders like Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows have fostered a caucus that is a force for conservative principles, and I am thankful for their continued leadership and mentorship. I’m also thankful to my predecessor, Matt Salmon, who as one of the founding members of the Freedom Caucus laid the groundwork for the future of this caucus.”
Rep. Mark Meadows– “I’ve been honored and humbled to serve as chairman of the Freedom Caucus for the last two and a half years, and I can’t think of a better person to pass the torch to than Andy Biggs. “Rep. Biggs is an outstanding public servant, a strong conservative, and a steady voice with the right experience to build on the tremendous strides our caucus has made since 2015 in fighting for open, limited, and accountable government. He’ll be a phenomenal leader for our group.”
