Washington, D.C. – Today, House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) announced the China Select Committee will be chaired by Rep. Mike Gallagher (WI-08).

Leader McCarthy released the following statement on the selection:

“The Chinese Communist Party is the greatest geopolitical threat of our lifetime. We need a whole-of-government approach that will build on the efforts of the Republican-led China Task Force and ensure America is prepared to tackle the economic and security challenges posed by the CCP. That is why under a Republican majority, I will establish a Select Committee on China.

“To effectively lead this effort, we need someone at the helm who understands the complexities of this generational challenge. As a Member who served in uniform as a Marine Counterintelligence officer and has dedicated his time in Congress to understanding, educating, and defending America from the threat the CCP poses, Mike Gallagher is exceptionally qualified and is the right person to lead and advance this important agenda at this vital moment.”
