Dan Crenshaw Snubbed as GOP Picks Mark Green for Chair of Homeland Security Committee

The House GOP steering committee has snubbed Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) by electing Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) to be the chair of the Homeland Security Committee.

The move is a huge blow to Crenshaw, who competed with Green for the job.

Politico reporter Olivia Beavers broke the news: “Rep. Mark GREEN (R-Tenn.) wins the Homeland Security gavel, I’m told.

“He beat out Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas). His first order of business is hiring staff.

“Says beating Crenshaw ‘was not easy’ and that he heard the Texas R did an ‘amazing job’ and that he is, ‘one of my best friends in Congress’.”

“Mark Green tells reporters he plans to have a permanent staff member staying at the border to work with CBP and other entities. Green is a member of the Freedom Caucus, but he was seen as a strong contender for the role before midterms/speakership negotiations played out.”

Punchbowl News founder Jake Sherman confirmed the reporting:

“The House GOP steering committee has elected MARK GREEN of Tennessee to be the chair of the Homeland Security Committee.”
