Cong. Hern joins House Minority Whip team


Washington, DC – Representative Kevin Hern announced Wednesday that he has joined House Minority Whip Steve Scalise’s Whip Team.

“It’s an honor to join this group of my peers to advance President Trump’s pro-growth agenda that has transformed the American economy in the last two years,” said Rep. Hern. “Serving under the leadership of someone like Whip Scalise is a rare opportunity. I look forward to being on his team and contributing to the work our party is doing for the American people.”

Whip Scalise said, “I’m excited to welcome Rep. Hern to the Whip Team. Kevin’s extensive experience as a small business owner and reputation as a problem solver will be an asset as we fight to land Republican priorities on President Trump’s desk. In the battle between conservative solutions and the Democrats’ socialist agenda, I’m glad to have Kevin on board as a champion for our values and policies.”

The Whip Team is made up of Republican Representatives who work closely with party leadership to ensure every American’s voice is heard in Congress. Whip Team members liaise between members of the Republican Conference and party leaders to address legislative concerns and advocate for the priorities of their colleagues.
