Lujan named chief deputy whip

-A A +A

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer appointed Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) as chief deputy whip for the 113th Congress.

“I look forward to this new opportunity to work with Whip Hoyer and assist in House Democrats’ efforts to promote an agenda that creates jobs and opportunities for the American people,” Luján said. 

“Whip Hoyer’s efforts have led to a unified and strong Democratic Caucus, and I am excited to work closely with my colleagues to build a united front on policies that will lead to a stronger economy and a brighter future for all Americans. This new post will also ensure that the voices of New Mexicans will be part of the discussion as the House moves forward on the critical issues facing our country.”

Party whips are responsible for mobilizing the party vote on important legislation before they come to the floor to be voted on. 

The whip also acts as a liaison between the members and the caucus to help build strong support for the Democratic agenda.   Hoyer’s team of chief deputy whips assists with this process and are part of the House Democratic Leadership.
