(CNN) – In another sign of the Republican Party’s efforts to regroup after multiple losses on Election Day, the National Republican Congressional Committee is now under new leadership.
Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas is now in charge of GOP efforts to win back a majority in the House of Representatives.
“Today marks a new beginning for the NRCC,” Session said in a statement released after his election Wednesday. “I will build an aggressive, energized, and modernized NRCC by immediately working to strengthen fundraising, implement strategic candidate recruitment, update messaging and technology, and create organizational strength and long-term strategies to secure a Republican Majority.”
Sessions takes over after Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma decided not to seek reelection as head of the GOP committee.
