Nov 17, 2010


Washington, D.C. – Rep Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, was unanimously elected by her House Republican Colleagues today to serve a second term as Vice Chair. 

“I am proud to join with you and our Leadership Team as we usher in a new era of Republican leadership,” said Vice Chair McMorris Rodgers in her acceptance speech. 

As Vice Chair, Rep. McMorris Rodgers spearheaded several important projects which better connected the American people with Republican ideas – expanding and improving the Conference’s use of New Media, making government more transparent, publicizing and fighting government waste, and recruiting women candidates in the “Year of the Republican Woman.” 

In the 112th Congress, Vice Chair McMorris Rodgers will expand upon her accomplishments with New Media and women’s outreach, while leading new projects that will be critical to restoring trust and confidence in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

“We have a lot of work ahead of us.  The challenges are great and time is critical, but the opportunities are even greater.  By working together – and putting the interests of the American people first and foremost – I know we can govern as effectively in the majority as we did being the ‘Voice of the People’ in the minority.”

Rep. McMorris Rodgers was first elected to Congress in 2004.  Conference Vice Chair is the fifth-highest ranking position in the House Leadership.
