Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman Jeb Hensarling (TX-05), chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, released the following statement today regarding his plans for the remainder of the 113th Congress.

“Although I am humbled by the calls, emails, and conversations from my colleagues  encouraging me to return to leadership for the remainder of the 113th Congress, I will not be a candidate for Majority Leader next week.  After prayerful reflection, I have come to the conclusion that this is not the right office at the right time for me and my family.  I look forward to working with the new Majority Leader to fight for a freer, stronger, more prosperous America as Chairman of the Financial Services Committee and the Representative of the Fifth District of Texas.”
