Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick Issues Statement about Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi's Decision Regarding Chairmanship of the House Intelligence
"I support my friend and colleague Alcee Hastings. He is an effective, intelligent, and hard working public servant. He is committed to protecting our national security.
The Congressman has a wealth of experience and has shared his knowledge to keep America safe. Congressman Hastings has been an effective Member of the House Intelligence Committee for the past seven years. I sincerely hope he will be reappointed to the Intelligence Committee.
I respect the decision of Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi. I will support the new Chairperson of the House Intelligence Committee."
