Steube Sworn in for Second Congressional Term in the House
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) today released the following statement after the swearing in ceremony for the 117th Congress:
“Today, as we convene the 117th Congress, all Members of Congress take the oath of office. This oath is our public affirmation to support the U.S. Constitution. It should serve to remind every Member that our actions and policies serve the citizens of our districts and the greater common good of the nation. As Speaker Pelosi maintains the gavel for the House and signals her intent to advance a radical progressive agenda, we should all reflect on this oath and question the Democrats’ rejection of the principles that have guided our government for more than two centuries. Entering this new session, I am honored to serve the 17th Congressional District of Florida and will continue to stand up for our shared values and sacred American freedoms.”
Steube was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017, making this his second term as a U.S. Representative. He represents the 17th Congressional District, which covers all of Charlotte, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands and Okeechobee counties along with portions of Lee, Polk and Sarasota counties. The district’s land area of over 6,300 square miles is home to some of the largest cattle ranches, crops and citrus farms in the state.
