Greg Walden promoted in House leadership, will chair National Republican Congressional Committee
November 15, 2012
The Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives today unanimously selected U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) to one of the top leadership positions in the Congress. He will chair the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC). The NRCC Chairman is one of eight positions elected by Republican House Members, and works with the Speaker, Majority Leader, and other top officials to set the House's agenda at the leadership table.
"I work hard for the people of southern, central, and eastern Oregon, and this new leadership position allows me to voice the concerns of Oregonians at the decision-making table in Washington, D.C. Since 1986, I have owned and managed a small business in Oregon with my wife. I know what it takes to grow jobs. As NRCC Chairman, I will put my experience to good use to help enact a pro-jobs, pro-growth agenda in the House," said Walden.
