Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) today announced he has been named to the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC)’s 2018 leadership team. Chairman Steve Stivers (OH-15) has tapped Emmer to serve as his NRCC Deputy.
“I am honored to have been chosen to serve as Deputy Chair under our new leader, Chairman Steve Stivers,” said Emmer. “Election Day 2016 was a huge success, and I am excited to be part of this team as we work toward an even more victorious 2018! This incredible team of members and I share a commitment to representing all Americans here in Congress, and we will ensure the next class of Republicans do as well.”
“Since joining Congress, Congressman Emmer has spent tireless hours assisting his colleagues, Republican candidates and the party as a whole,” said Chairman Stivers. “Not only did Emmer work to ensure we maintained our Republican seats in Minnesota, but he stepped up to help and lend advice to candidates across the country. Emmer is a true team player who played an integral role in our successful November 8th, and I am looking forward to working with him and the rest of the NRCC leadership team to build on our recent success.”
Over the years Emmer has consistently worked to elect Republican candidates up and down the ticket, both in Minnesota and across the country. For the 2016 election, Emmer was appointed as NRCC Freshman Liaison as well as Deputy to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy for the Young Guns program. Since November, Emmer has helped newly elected members transition into Congress.
