With the Democrats winning the majority in the 116th Congress, Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC10) had a choice: pursue a political leadership post in the House Republican Minority Leadership or a policy leadership post.
Currently, Rep. McHenry serves as Chief Deputy Whip in the House Republican Majority, North Carolina’s highest-ranked elected official. He also served as a vice-chairman on the House Financial Services Committee (HFSC), arguably the most important House Committee for credit unions.
On November 8, Congressman McHenry made his choice and announced his intent to seek the post of Ranking Republican of HFSC. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA43), the longtime ranking member of HFSC, will likely serve as chairperson.
“In the 116th Congress, I will continue to seek legislative solutions that promote financial inclusion for all,” Rep. McHenry said in his announcement.
