Mace tapped for key House committees

Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-SC-01) was selected Tuesday, January 26 to serve on the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, as well as the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

“The fact is, despite the sacrifices our veterans make to defend our country, they aren’t among Washington’s top priorities,” Mace said in a news release. “As a member of the Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I will do everything in my power to ensure this changes and veterans get the care and support they’ve earned.”

“We’re very excited to host the club for the first time,” Airports Director Jon Rembold said in a release. “This is a great opportunity to showcase the airport and we look forward to sharing flying stories, fellowship and food with our guests. We see this as the beginning of a fun new relationship!”

Cunningham announces podcast

Former South Carolina Congressman Joe Cunningham announced the launch of his new podcast, “Joint Resolution with Joe Cunningham.” According to his news release, the podcast will aim to “bring together the biggest names in politics to discuss solutions to the most pressing issues facing our country.”

“In my farewell address on the House floor, I talked about the importance of getting rid of the political tribalism in this country, and the politicians who pour kerosene on the partisan fire,” Cunningham said in the release. “I stressed the importance of Democrats and Republicans sitting down and actually talking to each other again, and more importantly, listening to each other again. I started this podcast because I wanted to practice what I preach. I think now more than ever we need to hear differing thoughts and perspectives on current issues and bring fresh ideas to the table.”

The first episode features former Congressman Denver Riggleman (R-VA) and Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (D-VA). Both of these leaders are known for their independent streaks and share Cunningham’s call for an end to hyperpartisanship and tribalism.

Cunningham emphasized his commitment to serving South Carolina.

“My service to South Carolina is just getting started, and I will be sharing my plans for 2022 very soon,” Cunningham said. “In the meantime, I hope this podcast gets people thinking about how best to come together and tackle the challenges facing our state and nation.”

The podcast is available now on Spotify. For more information, visit www.joecunningham.org/podcast.
