Congressman Joe Wilson Selected to Lead RSC Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force

WASHINGTON – Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Mark Walker (NC-6) announced this afternoon that Representative Joe Wilson (SC-2) will lead the RSC’s Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force for the 115th Congress.

As America faces more foreign threats than ever, Rep. Wilson is uniquely suited to chair our Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force at the Republican Study Committee,” said Chairman Walker. “His record as an effective lawmaker will ensure that Congress implements conservative solutions to our most pressing issues.”

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the RSC’s Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force Chair, and I thank Chairman Mark Walker for the opportunity,” said Rep. Joe Wilson. “With a background of working across the Middle East, Africa, the Korean Peninsula, Central and Eastern Europe, Central and South America, the European Union, Central Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, I look forward to working with members of the RSC to find real solutions to security threats at home and abroad, with an extraordinary team assembled by President Donald Trump of Vice President Mike Pence, Chief of Staff John Kelly, Secretary Mike Pompeo, National Security Advisor John Bolton, and Ambassador Nikki Haley.”

With a new Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, it is especially timely to restart the Republican Study Committee’s Foreign Affairs and National Security Task Force, which will be focused on informing Members of national security and foreign policy issues related to counter-terrorism, WMD proliferation, NATO, European security, the Korean peninsula, and other topics.
