Blunt Elected to Republican Leadership Position
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (R) was elected as vice chairman of the Republican Conference on December 13. He defeated Sen. Ron Johnson from Wisconsin in the leadership race.
“I was honored to be chosen by my colleagues to serve as Republican Conference Vice Chairman today, and I hope this opportunity will allow me to continue contributing to the critical debates that we’re facing in America,” stated Blunt. “If we’re going to rein in federal spending and put Americans back to work, we must work together. I look forward to working closely with my colleagues on both sides of the Capitol – including my friend Senator Johnson – to accomplish those goals.”
The Senate Republican Conference is the formal organization of the Republican Senators in the United States Senate. The mission of the Conference is to serve as a means of informing the media of the opinions and activities of Senate Republicans. This isn’t the first time Blunt has held a leadership position. During his 14-year tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, Senator Blunt served as Majority and Minority Whip.
“We commend Senator Blunt on his election to leadership and wish him well on the challenges ahead,” says Mike Beall, Missouri Credit Union Association president/CEO.
