Lynn Westmoreland was born and raised in Georgia, living more than 25 years in Fayette County before moving to his current residence in Coweta County. A true American entrepreneur, Lynn began his own building company L.A.W. Builders. While running his business, Lynn was elected to the Georgia State House, where he served proudly for 12 years. In the state House, Lynn developed a reputation for fighting for lower taxes and smaller government. He was eventually elected to serve as the Republican Leader, a position he held for three years. His hard work and dedication is credited as one of the major reasons the Republican Party was able to win the majority in the Georgia State House for the first time.
In 2004, Lynn was elected to the United States House of Representatives for Georgia’s Eighth Congressional District. After a long redistricting battle, the Eighth District was converted into the Third District, which stretches from the southern suburbs of metro Atlanta into Middle Georgia and down to Columbus. In 2012, Lynn was re-elected to his fifth term in Congress.
Lynn and his wife Joan have been married for 44 years. They have three children and seven grandchildren.
In the 113th Congress, Lynn serves on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
Congressman Lynn Westmoreland previously served as the Deputy Chairman at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) for the 113th Congress, and worked with Chairman Greg Walden and the NRCC to regain the largest Republican majority since 1928. Westmoreland has served in a leadership role at the NRCC for the 111th and 112th Congress, leading the redistricting effort as the Vice Chairman for Redistricting and assisting Congressman Kevin McCarthy with candidate recruitment.
