The Kansas representative was chosen to help the GOP Whip advance the Republican agenda on the House Floor


TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – A US congressman from Kansas will help push the Republican agenda on the House Floor.

On Tuesday, March 15, Congressman Jake La Turner (KS-02) says he has accepted an invitation to serve as Deputy Whip on the United States House Republican Whip Team.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to be part of the House Republican Whip team to help advance common-sense conservative solutions that get our nation back on track and make it easier for Kansas families to succeed,” said said Congressman LaTurner. “It is crucial that House Republicans remain united in our efforts to push back against Speaker Pelosi’s radical agenda that only exacerbates the crises facing American workers. I want to thank Whip Scalise for giving me this opportunity, and I can’t wait to get started with the rest of the team.

Rep. LaTurner said he would help GOP Whip Steve Scalise advance the Republican agenda in the House.

“I am proud to announce that Congressman LaTurner will join our Whip Team to fight President Pelosi’s far-left agenda and reverse President Biden’s disastrous policies that are hurting hard-working families in Kansas. A dedicated public servant who loves his country, Congressman LaTurner previously served in both the Kansas State Senate and as Kansas State Treasurer, where he championed fiscally conservative solutions that have enabled saving taxpayers money. Congressman LaTurner will play a vital role on our Whip Team fighting for farmers, workers and small businesses – just as he already does for his constituents in eastern Kansas,” said the Republican Whip of the House, Steve Scalise.

The United States House indicates a Whip assists party leadership to manage the party’s legislative agenda on the floor of the House. The Whip communicates and networks with party members to mobilize their support for important party measures that are passed.
