HARRISBURG — Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason is pleased to announce that U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), the Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), will be featured as the keynote speaker during the Republican Party of Pennsylvania’s Annual Lincoln Day Dinner, to be held on Friday, February 11, 2011.”As Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Congressman Sessions was a key player in the 2010 elections that finally fired Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and sent a new Republican majority to the U.S. House of Representatives. Pennsylvania played a critical role in this historic effort with the election of twelve members to the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Pennsylvania’s Republican Congressional delegation is committed to restoring fiscal responsibility and they have joined Speaker John Boehner and Congressman Sessions by answering the call of the American people to cut spending, create jobs, and revive our economy. With Congressional Republicans fighting to restore the public’s trust in government, I believe many in our Commonwealth will be interested in what Congressman Sessions has to say at this critical juncture in our nation’s history.”
Congressman Pete Sessions represents the 32nd Congressional District of Texas, serving residents of the city of Dallas and its suburban communities. In 2010, Congressman Sessions was reelected to serve his eighth term. Congressman Sessions currently serves as a member of the House Rules Committee.
In November the Republican Party of Pennsylvania helped to elect five new Republican Congressmen (Mike Kelly — 3rd District, Pat Meehan — 7th District, Mike Fitzpatrick — 8thDistrict, Tom Marino — 10th District, Lou Barletta– 11th District), and reelected seven Congressmen (G.T.
