WASHINGTON, D.C. – Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs has been elected by the House Freedom Caucus membership to be its next chairman. Biggs becomes the third Freedom Caucus chairman, following Congressmen Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows.
“I’m grateful for the trust of my colleagues in selecting me to serve as the next chairman of the House Freedom Caucus,” said Biggs in a press release. “The Freedom Caucus has revolutionized Capitol Hill because our members endeavor to keep our promises to the American people. Freedom Caucus members have shown that they will stand for principle over politics—every time. The House Freedom Caucus has created a national reputation by standing up for Americans who have felt that they didn’t have a voice in Congress. Great leaders like Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows have fostered a caucus that is a force for conservative principles, and I am thankful for their continued leadership and mentorship.”

Freedom Caucus member Congressman Jody Hice tweeted praise for Biggs, who he described as “a strong leader and compelling voice within the caucus.”
“We must fight against increased government spending and for a balanced budget. We must fight for border security and the elimination of all loopholes that incentivize illegal entry into this nation. We must work to lower health care costs and improve access and quality for all Americans.” Biggs concluded, “We will stand with President Trump as he keeps his promises to the American people. And we will never forget the people who sent us to Congress to work on their behalf.”
