Washington, D.C. — Congressman Fred Keller (R-PA) today applauded the reelection of Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY), and the rest of the members selected this afternoon to lead the Republican Conference in the 117th Congress.
Also elected to leadership positions were: Conference Vice Chair Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA); NRCC Chair Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN); Policy Chair Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL); and Conference Secretary Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC).
U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., said Monday that his decision not to seek another term in 2022 was not political but personal.
The second-term lawmaker said he is not planning a gubernatorial run and plans to go back to the private sector.
“I have been getting phone calls on almost a daily basis from people saying, ‘I want to help you run for governor.’ ‘I want to help your reelection campaign,’” Toomey said. “I need to be candid with them.”
