The Leadership Connect team has created a “House Flip” series analyzing congressional committee Ranking Members, their key staff, and who may become committee Chairs since Republicans have taken the House for the 118th Congress
What we looked at:
Bio • Career History • Sponsored Legislation • Recent News & Tweets
Notable Connections in Lobbying & Government Affairs • Key Staff Analysis
All Reelected Ranking Members Became Committee Chairs in the Last House Flip
What if… Committee on Appropriations
Chair Rosa Luisa DeLauro (D-CT, 3) → Ranking Member Kay Granger (R-TX, 12)
The last time the House flipped, all reelected ranking members became chairs of their committees. If Republicans follow the same template, Kay Granger would become the chair.
If you need to work with this committee and track legislation, use Leadership Connect to develop relationships with the most influential people. Start off by seeing what bills may be introduced, who would be responsible for the text, and how you can connect with them.
Current minority committee staff includes well-connected individuals with experience in the Trump administration, lobbying firms, and member offices.
