FreedomWorks Statement on Election of Rep. Mark Meadows to Serve as House Freedom Caucus Chairman

Following the election of Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) to serve as chairman of the House Freedom Caucus in the 115th Congress, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“With majorities in both chambers of Congress and control the White House, Republicans cannot squander the opportunity before them to put America back on the right track. Now is the time for House Republican leaders to work with the House Freedom Caucus to pursue a bold, fiscally conservative policy agenda that repeals ObamaCare and replaces it with patient-centered alternatives, rolls back executive power and the federal bureaucracy, and brings fundamental, pro-growth tax reform.”

“Under the leadership of Rep. Jim Jordan, the House Freedom Caucus became the conservative conscience of the lower chamber. We’re confident that this group of principled members will continue to move the Republican Conference in a conservative direction under Rep. Meadows. We congratulate Rep. Meadows and look forward to working with the House Freedom Caucus in the next Congress.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
