Mark Meadows Unanimously Elected Chairman of House Freedom Caucus

North Carolina conservative congressman Mark Meadows has been officially elected Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, after receiving unanimous support from the more than 40 members of the caucus.

Meadows will replace outgoing Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) who declined the opportunity to run for a third term.

“I am honored and humbled to receive the support of my colleagues for chairman of the House Freedom Caucus,” Meadows said in a statement. “It is a position that I take very seriously, and as we look toward the coming year, I am tremendously excited about the opportunities we will have to make a difference for Americans on Main Street.”

That year, Meadows introduced a motion to vacate the chair to determine whether the House still supported Boehner as Speaker. Just as Meadows gained enough support to force a vote on the measure, Boehner quickly resigned, sending shockwaves through Washington’s establishment elites.

With Congressman Meadows now positioned as the de facto leader of Conservatives in the House, the American people can take solace in knowing there’s a no nonsense, Conservative reformer leading the way and setting the standard for Conservatism in Washington again.
