It doesn't take long to realize why Congressman Bill Flores was elected to represent Texas. He oozes the traditional characteristics that make up the Lone Star state. He loves his country, his church, and his conservative values. As newly elected Chair of the Republican Study Committee, Flores led with 84 votes among RSC members against opponent Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC). The committee, which was started in 1973, is a hub for conservative thinking inside the House of Representatives.
