FreedomWorks Statement on GOP Retaining Control of the U.S. House of Representatives

Following reports that Republicans have retained control of the House of Representatives, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Tonight, the Republican Party held on to their majority in the House but saw it diminished by the voters. This should serve as a message to Speaker Ryan and the rest of his leadership team that they should not continue the legacy of Boehner. The barn is now empty and collapsing. The legislative inertia that Republicans leaders in the House have offered over the last year is insufficient to the challenges of our time.”

“Speaker Ryan must work with conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus to implement conservative legislation that honors the Constitution, respects the free market, and empowers all Americans to make freedom work.”

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
