Freshman Rep.-elect Kristi Noem, R, SD, hasn’t even been sworn into the 112th Congress, but she is already set to lead her fellow freshman representatives.
Noem and Rep.-elect Tim Scott, R, SC, were tapped Wednesday as Freshman Leadership Representatives, a position created this year. They will essentially serve as liaisons between the newly elected members and the House leaders.
This morning, Noem talks to AM’s John Roberts about her plans for the position and how she’ll work with Democrats. And, she addresses her association with the Tea Party, who supported her candidacy.
