Washington, D.C. – House GOP Conference Chair and Congresswoman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) issued the following statement after Rep. Susan Brooks (IN-05) announced this morning that she would be retiring following the completion of her current term:
“Susan Brooks is an inspiration to all of us, and she has accomplished so much in her career that has made things better for her fellow Hoosiers and for our country. During her seven years in the House, six years as a United States attorney, and time spent serving the city of Indianapolis, she has always put the interests of others first, and has been a champion for the conservative causes that allow everyone to have a shot at the American Dream.
“I’m honored to call her a friend, and can say that House Republicans will be losing a distinguished public servant and an admired colleague when she retires following the 116th Congress. While I’m confident Indiana’s 5th District will continue to have strong and principled conservative leadership going forward, I know Susan’s voice and passion will be sorely missed in our Conference.”
