The Tuesday Group…Moderate Republicans….

For those who keep arguing the nonsense that there are NO Republican moderates in the 114th Congress….

The Tuesday Group is an informal caucus of approximately 50 moderate Republican members of the United States House of Representatives in the 114th Congress (2015–2017).[1] It was founded in 1994 in the wake of the Republican takeover of the House. The Republican House caucus was dominated by conservative Republicans and the Tuesday Group was founded to counterbalance that conservative trend. There were approximately 40 members when it was founded.[2] In 2007 the Tuesday Group founded its own political action committee.[3]

The co-chairs of the Tuesday Group were Charlie Dent, Robert Dold, and Adam Kinzinger from 2015–2017,[1] and Dent, Tom MacArthur and Elise Stefanik from 2017.[4] MacArthur resigned in May 2017 due to disagreement among members over the American Health Care Act of 2017.[5]

Former co-chairs include Charlie Bass, Mike Castle, Jo Ann Emerson, Mark Kirk, and Fred Upton.[2][6]Members have included Judy Biggert, Sherwood Boehlert, Tom Davis, Mike Fitzpatrick, Mark Foley, Jim Gerlach, Nancy Johnson, Sue Kelly, Jim Kolbe, Ray LaHood, Leonard Lance, Jim Leach, John McKernan, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Bob Michel, Todd Platts, Jim Ramstad, Dave Reichert, Joe Schwarz, Chris Shays, Rob Simmons, Olympia Snowe, James Walsh, and Heather Wilson[2][3][7]

The other major GOP group of moderates in Congress is the Republican Main Street Partnership, which includes members of both the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House….

  1. Above i have posted a list of OVER 50 Republican lawmakers who consider THEMSELVES Moderates….
    While two people here don’t believe these lawmakers at their choice?

    I DO...

  2. I wouldn’t call all 50 of them moderates, just like the Democrats talked about as members of the Blue Dog group are not moderates, but there are at least a dozen Republicans in the House who would have qualified as “moderates” even 25 years ago.

  3. Enough on this!

    THEY ARE IN A MODERATE REPUBLICAN GROUP!

    People can call whatever they want….
    BUT THEY THEMSELVES ID as MODERATE REPUBLICANS…..

    END OF STORY!

  4. I’ve gone to meetings and events of the Republican Womens’ Club before and that doesn’t mean…. oh wait, that would make me female to Keith…

  5. No he’s not.

    He’s obsessed.

    I don’t agree that all those people are moderates in the traditional sense of that term.I believe that they are “moderate conservatives ” and explained my views earlier.I see no reason to repeat those views.
