SOUTHERLAND ELECTED BY PEERS TO SERVE AS FIRST SOPHOMORE CLASS REPRESENTATIVE

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Steve Southerland, II was elected today by the members of the Republican class of 2010 to serve as sophomore class representative to the House Republican leadership.  Southerland will occupy an important seat at the leadership table, helping shape the party’s agenda and acting as a conduit between leadership and the historic sophomore class.

“It is a great honor to serve as sophomore class representative to the House Republican leadership,” Southerland said.  “There is no more humbling feeling than to have your friends and peers invest their trust in you to advance a shared cause.  I believe that people support that which they help create, and for that reason I will continue to build upon these relationships and seek my colleagues’ counsel on the issues the American people care about most.  I also look forward to working closely with the entire House Republican leadership team to advance freedom, shrink government, and empower hardworking families and job creators.”

Southerland is the first member of Congress elected to the newly-created sophomore class representative role.  He succeeds Reps. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Kristi Noem (R-SD), who were appointed freshman class representatives for the now expired 112th Congress.
