January 10, 2023

U.S. Representative John Rose (TN-06) recently released the following statement regarding the election of Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives for the 118th Congress:

“From the first ballot to the 15th ballot, I was proud to vote for the proven conservative, endorsed by President Trump, Kevin McCarthy, for Speaker. I am confident Speaker McCarthy will do an exceptional job leading the new Republican Majority in the House as we work to: hold the Biden Administration’s out-of-touch agenda accountable, reign in Washington’s reckless deficit spending that has caused runaway inflation, restore America’s energy independence, bring back open debate to restore the American People’s voice in the People’s House, investigate the Biden family’s shady business dealings, and tirelessly work to secure our southern border. I assure the people of Tennessee that I will keep a watchful eye on Speaker McCarthy, and if he veers from the conservative principles the American people demand and expect, he will be held accountable.”

After being sworn into office on January 7th to serve as the U.S. Representative for Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District in the 118th Congress John Rose said:

“It is an extreme honor to take the oath of office to continue serving the people of Tennessee’s Sixth Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. As Republicans are sworn into the majority in the U.S. House, I am optimistic about the opportunity to enact policies that encourage job growth, fight inflation, defend our borders, protect law enforcement, preserve our constitution, and hold Washington accountable to the American people,” said Rep. Rose. “I am also thrilled to welcome my new constituents from East Nashville, Van Buren County, and portions of Scott and Warren Counties. I thank you for again trusting me to represent your voice in Congress.”
