Roskam congratulates Scalise on majority whip race

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL) released the following statement today on the results of the majority whip election, which came after  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost in Virginia's Republican primary June 10.

“It has been my honor and privilege these past eight days to engage with our members in a robust discussion on how to move our conference and our country in a better direction. Eric's loss was a shock to all of us, and – as we move forward – we must do so united in the fight against the policies that are holding our economy and our people back.

"I wholeheartedly congratulate Steve [Scalise] on his election. He ran a great race, and I look forward to working together to achieve conservative policy wins that improve the lives of the American people.”

Louisiana's Scalise, 48, and Indiana's Marlin Stutzman were candidates for the No. 3 position of majority whip. Scalise is chairman of the Republican Study Committee, a group of lawmakers supporting a small-government agenda.
