KY House Republican Caucus Selects Leadership for Next Two Years

GOP-LogoFRANKFORT, KY (1/9/13) – House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover, R-Jamestown (83rd District), was elected today to a seventh consecutive term as the top GOP leader in the House. Hoover was re-elected to another two year term during a caucus meeting of the 44 House Republican members today in Frankfort, and becomes the longest serving House Republican Floor Leader in Kentucky’s history.
 
“It is very humbling to me that our members once again voiced their confidence in me as their leader,” Rep. Hoover said. “We have many crucial issues facing our Commonwealth, and I look forward to working as House Republican Floor Leader with our members and those across the aisle on solving these problems.”
 
In addition to Hoover’s re-election as House Republican Floor Leader, members re-elected Rep. Bob DeWeese, R-Louisville (48th District) as House Republican Caucus Chair, and Rep. John ‘Bam’ Carney was elected as House Republican Whip. It is the sixth consecutive time Rep. DeWeese has been elected Caucus Chair, and the first time Rep. Carney has been elected to a leadership position in the House Republican Caucus.
 
Representatives Hoover, DeWeese and Carney will serve in their respective House Republican Leadership roles until January 2015.
