Now in his second term in Congress, U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, R-Fla., is headed to the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Steube said he would use his new assignment to watch over the Biden administration on international issues.
“As the Biden administration begins to unravel our foreign affairs victories from the last four years, we need warriors on the House Foreign Affairs Committee who will be dedicated to holding our adversaries like China and Iran accountable,” Steube said on Wednesday. “Moreover, Floridians deserve strong voices in Congress who will continue to show strength against Communist regimes in countries like Cuba and Venezuela.
“As the Biden administration takes drastic moves to unravel our foreign affairs victories, like signaling intent to rejoin the JCPOA or taking a ‘patient’ approach to our adversaries in China, we need warriors on the House Foreign Affairs Committee who will be truly committed to protecting U.S. international interests,” Steube added. “I am honored to be given this opportunity to play an active role in U.S diplomatic missions and represent Floridians as we stand up to terrorism, socialism, and human rights abuses.”
Steube said he will continue to serve on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. In his first term in Congress, Steube also served on the U.S. House Veterans Affairs and the Oversight and Reform Committees.
After serving in the Florida Legislature, Steube was first elected to Congress in 2018 after U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., retired. Steube represents parts of Southwest Florida.
