WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) was re-elected as the First Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC). In addition to serving on the CPC Executive Committee, the First Vice Chair will work hand-in-hand with the Co-Chairs on all aspects of the Caucus.

“I am honored to be re-elected by my Progressive Caucus colleagues for this leadership position,” Rep. Pocan said. “Progressive values have informed my work here in Congress and I look forward to continue strengthening the CPC’s message and advancing our policy priorities. The start of the next Congress will undoubtedly present new challenges, but I will fight harder than ever to ensure progressives have a seat at the table so we can help working families get ahead.”

In the 114th Congress, Rep. Pocan also served as the First Vice Chair. Over the past two years in the position, Rep. Pocan has acted as a liaison between outside groups and the Caucus through meet-and-greet breakfasts and represented the CPC in rallies and events across the nation. Additionally, he organized the FY ’17 CPC People’s Budget, which garnered more outside group support than any previous CPC budget.
