Yesterday was all about you, dads!

Communications • June 19, 2017

After a tough week that reminded us just how precious life is, family time this weekend was extra special.

Dads rock every day of the year, but who doesn’t love an annual opportunity to shower them with even more love and remind them how much they mean to us?

Between throwback photos and notes to their dads and kids, reading House Republicans’ posts on social media this weekend basically had us doing this on a loop:

We awwwed a lot yesterday, so we wanted to make sure you saw some of the posts, too! Here’s a Father’s Day roundup:

Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA):

“Steve’s greatest joy is being a father to Madison and Harrison, and a husband to Jennifer. This Father’s Day has special meaning for the Scalise family, and they send their best wishes to every family, especially the dads. Take the time to be close with the ones you love. Thank you for the continued prayers, support, and outpouring of love.”


Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN):

 

“As part of his Father’s Day gift Ryan said that he would help me cut the grass. I had a great day spending time with the family at home in Indiana.”


Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS):

My dad taught me the values of hard work and dedication, leading by example working every day on our family farm. His care and support have helped me get to where I am today and showed me how to be the best dad I could be for my own two daughters. This pic is circa late 1980s. Thanks dad, I love you, and Happy Fathers Day.”


Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH):

“Throughout my life I’ve had a few 3 letter titles — COL, REP, DOC. But none of them are as important as DAD. To my dad and all fathers across Ohio and America, Happy Father’s Day, and thanks for everything you contribute to our families and country.”


Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA):

“There is no greater blessing than being a father, and I am grateful every day for my two daughters and four grandchildren who are filled with God’s grace. To all fathers, including my own, Happy Father’s Day!

I would also like to extend a special thanks to the military fathers who are overseas protecting our nation. They and their families make so many sacrifices in order to keep America safe and on days like Father’s Day, when we all honor our own families, it is important to keep these heroes and their loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.”


Rules Committee Chair Pete Sessions (R-TX):

“Beating the Texas heat with a pre-father’s day swim with my son Alex.”



Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN):

“#HappyFathersDay to all the great dads out there.”




Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM):

“On this Father’s Day, I turn to what has made me the proudest in my life, and that’s the woman who is my daughter. She truly belongs on that mountain alongside the other 4.”


Rep. John Carter (R-TX):

“I want to wish all of the #TX31 dads & grandfathers a #HappyFathersDay! We’ve sure got the best job out there.”



Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX):

“I hope everyone is having an enjoyable Father’s Day. I feel so incredibly blessed today and every day to be the father of my two wonderful daughters, Riley and Darby.”


Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX):

“Happy Father’s Day to the best man I’ve ever met, my dad Virgil Poe. I hope I turn out like him, the man I admire the most. To all the fathers out there, including my son Kurt, Happy Father’s Day!”


Rep. Scott Tipton (R-CO):

“To all the dads and grandpas out there, happy Father’s Day!”

Rep. Steve Knight (R-CA):

My father has been an inspiration and guide to my daily life; especially in my own role as a father to my two sons. The lessons we all learn from our fathers create a glimpse of how we learn and grow within our communities for the future. Thank you to all of the fathers in our lives. I hope you have a wonderful day!”


Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC):
