WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has announced that Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) will be their new executive committee finance chair for 2005-2006. The finance chair is the No. 2 leadership position at the NRCC.
“This is an exciting and important time for the party and for the House,” said Granger. “When Chairman Tom Reynolds asked me to serve as the NRCC’s finance chair for this cycle, I accepted without hesitation. Much has been done for me, and I look forward to returning that help by assisting in whatever way I can so that we can retain and grow our House majority.”
As finance chair, Granger will be in charge of helping members meet their fundraising goals. Granger joins 10 other chairs who make up the executive committee. The choice of Granger highlights the leadership’s respect and trust in the Texas Republican. Granger also was appointed recently to serve on the prestigious and much-coveted Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.
In addition to the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, Granger serves on the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee and is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives’ leadership, serving as a deputy whip.
