FreedomWorks is proud to honor Rep. Michael Cloud (R-Texas) as our member of the month for October 2021. He represents Texas’ 27th Congressional District, encompassing much of the Gulf Coast in southern Texas.
The Big Picture
Since being elected to Congress in a special election in June 2018, Rep. Cloud has been a loud voice in support of limited government and personal liberty.
In 1997, Rep. Cloud graduated from Oral Roberts University with a Bachelor of Science in Mass Media Communications. At Oral Roberts, he was a member of the cross country and track teams. After graduating from Oral Roberts, Rep. Cloud started a small business, Bright Ideas Media. From 2010 through 2017, he chaired the Victoria County Republican Party. After winning the special election in June 2018, Rep. Cloud was reelected in November 2018 and 2020.
In the current Congress, Rep. Cloud sits on two committees: the House Oversight and Reform Committee and the Agriculture Committee. On the Oversight Committee, he serves as the Ranking Member on the Economic and Consumer Policy Subcommittee. On the Agriculture Committee, he serves on the Nutrition, Oversight, and Department Operations Subcommittee, and the Commodity Exchanges, Energy, and Credit Subcommittee. He is also a member of the House Freedom Caucus, and the Republican Study Committee.
Rep. Cloud is one of only a few members to hold a 100 percent on FreedomWorks’ Congressional Scorecard in 2021. Moreover, Rep. Cloud does not just vote the right way, he also sponsors and cosponsors substantive bills that promote limited government and conservative values.
Why it Matters
While many members of Congress campaign on conservative principles, far too many drop those principles once they are sworn into office. Others abandon these principles after spending a few years in Washington. Since Rep. Cloud came to Congress in June 2018, he has never stepped back from fighting for the conservative principles he campaigned on. We hope conservatives thinking about running for office look to Rep. Cloud as an example of someone who has adhered to his principles even after spending time in Washington.
You can follow Rep. Cloud’s work in Washington on Twitter and Facebook, and of course, follow FreedomWorks' coverage of the excellent work of members like Rep. Cloud on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as well.
We thank Rep. Michael Cloud for his excellent work promoting freedom and are excited to honor him as our member of the month for October 2021. We look forward to watching as he continues to fight for individual liberty and serve the constituents of Texas’ 27th congressional district.
