Following the election of Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS-01), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, to the House Republican Steering Committee, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“We congratulate Tim Huelskamp on his election to the Republican Steering Committee. We know that he’ll continue to be a voice for fiscally conservative principles and limited government in this new role.”
“We’ve said all along that House Republican leaders should listen to conservative members. That’s what John Boehner failed to do, and it eventually led to him losing his post as Speaker. Huelskamp’s election is certainly a positive sign and a step in the right direction.”
