Today, Republican U.S. Congressman Patrick McHenry, who represents North Carolina’s 10th district, was selected by Majority Whip-Elect Steve Scalise (R-LA) to serve as his Chief Deputy Whip.

In a statement released today (June 26), Rep. McHenry said he looks forward to working with Rep. Scalise, five Senior Deputy Whips and the rest of the whip team to support a conservative, pro-growth agenda that will improve the economy, create jobs and help middle class families.

Whips for both parties are primarily responsible for keeping track of party members to ensure that members are in attendance for important votes and events.
