House Freedom Caucus reportedly taps Rep. Bob Good to serve as its next chair

The House Freedom Caucus has selected GOP Rep. Bob Good of Virginia to serve as its next chair, according to reports.

GOP Rep. Warren Davidson of Ohio had reportedly advocated against tapping Good for the role.

"I am concerned that our group often relies too much on power (available primarily due to the narrow majority) and too little on influence with and among our colleagues," Davidson communicated to HFC members in a letter, according to the text of the note posted on X by Axios' Juliegrace Brufke.

"I ask that we consider how to best increase our influence while preserving our power to move policy in the right direction. I strongly feel that Bob Good as Chairman will impair that objective," Davidson wrote. "I do not have an alternative nomination, but as my final fiduciary duty as a board member, I ask that you prayerfully consider electing someone else as Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus."

Good was one of the eight House Republicans who voted in favor of ousting GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California from the House speakership earlier this year. McCarthy recently announced that he will leave Congress at the end of the year.

Good endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president earlier this year, even before DeSantis had announced his White House bid.

"Governor Ron DeSantis has shown through action as Florida’s chief executive that confronting hard challenges delivers effective results for every man, woman, and child," Good said, according to Never Back Down. "That strength in the face of adversity is needed more today than ever before, and it is why I am unequivocally endorsing and encouraging Governor DeSantis to run for president."

Trump holds a huge lead over the rest of GOP presidential primary field, according to polls.
