RNC Announces Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus issued the following statement today after Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) was elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Paul Ryan is the right man, at the right time, to lead the House of Representatives at this critical period in history. Paul is a devoted husband and father, as well as a loyal, long time friend, and a man committed to making our country a better place," said Chairman Reince Priebus.
"Paul is a conservative who has dedicated his life to public service, and I know that he's focused toward building an America where everyone can prosper. I want to thank Speaker John Boehner for his exemplary leadership during his tenure as Speaker. His years of principled service have greatly benefited our party and our nation."

Congressman Buck On Oil Export Ban

FROM THE OFFICE OF KEN BUCK:  I want to share my latest op-ed in the Denver Post, in which I discuss the need to lift the export ban on crude oil in the United States. By lifting the export ban on crude oil, Congress has an opportunity to encourage job creation in the private sector, bolster national security, and reduce the cost of a critical commodity for consumers. Americans take pride in our domestic products and we have worked hard to open global markets � except for crude oil. That must change.

The United States is the world's leading producer of total oil supply. America's oil exports are vital for our foreign policy. Russia uses its energy policy as a weapon against the west, and Iran uses proceeds from its oil supply to fund international terrorism and its nuclear weapon program. It would be tragic if Congress and President Obama allowed more oil to flow out of Iran than flows out of Colorado, Texas, or North Dakota. We should not impose harsher controls on the DJ Basin than on our enemies. 

You can read the whole op-ed here.

For more frequent updates on legislation and events, please follow me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram  I look forward to hearing from you; please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, Castle Pines, or Greeley office should you need any assistance.

Speaker Hullinghorst office embroiled in scandal; top staffer leaves Capitol
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. – Colorado Speaker of the House Dickey Lee Hullinghorst, D-Boulder, is in hot water after her “special adviser,” Jenise May, was caught violating House rules. 

According to The Durango Herald, May, a former state representative who lost her seat to Republican JoAnn Windholz in November, served on House staff while simultaneously running for a state Senate seat -- a flagrant violation of House rules.

Once confronted by Herald reporter Peter Marcus, May immediately left the Capitol. 

“Coloradans, and all Americans, are tired of politicians who think and act like they are above the rules. After such a blatant violation of House rules, it’s clear that neither Speaker Hullinghorst, nor candidate May have any respect for the taxpayers of this state,” Colorado Republican Committee Chairman Steve House said.  “The resolution here is simple: Speaker Hullinghorst must require candidate May return all taxpayer funds she accepted while violating House rules.”   

Message From Steve House - State Party Chairman

Day One

Good afternoon Colorado Republicans!

Saturday was a day that included a humbling election and exciting possibilities for the future.  I am honored by the support and trust given me to be your Chairman.  Thank you all who participated in the process.

This has been an exciting first day to serve as your new Party Chairman.  From the first moment I walked into the party office down at the State Headquarters, Ryan Call and his entire team have been outstanding in the transition process. They are patiently helping me get up to speed and passionate about ensuring our success in 2016.  Ryan himself is doing a great job giving me help and direction.  I could not be happier and they are all setting a very high standard for any transition period.

Thank you team Call!

Throughout the day my transition team has been helping me reach out to our major donors to begin establishing relationships and raising funds to get our new victory efforts off on a strong footing.

You should become a part of this important effort today!
