WASHINGTON – NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer released the following statement regarding Rep. Greg Walden’s (R-OR) retirement announcement:
“Chairman Greg Walden is a class act and political juggernaut who will be sorely missed in Washington.
“I spoke to Greg and he assured me that he will remain heavily engaged in ensuring this seat remains in Republican hands.
“I consider it an honor to follow in Greg’s footsteps as NRCC Chairman and will continue leaning on him for his support and guidance as we fight to take back the Majority in 2020. “This is a solidly Republican district and it will remain so in 2020.”
