Indiana's Carson Chosen For Leadership Post

 WASHINGTON - Black Congressman André Carson has been selected to serve as a Regional Whip for the Democratic Caucus in the upcoming 112th Congress.

 

As a whip, Congressman Carson will assist House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) in counting votes and rallying member support for legislation. Congressman Carson will be responsible for whipping votes among Democratic members from Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma.

 

“The Democratic Caucus relies on the whip team to pull together votes for legislation that’s crucial to its agenda,” said Congressman Carson. “I am proud to have been selected to serve in this important role, and it gives the people of the 7th District an even bigger voice in Congress.”

 

This new role is the second leadership position Congressman Carson has been elected to in recent weeks. Earlier this month he was elected to serve as the Whip for the Congressional Black Caucus.
