(HARRISBURG) – The Senate Republican Caucus has unanimously elected Senator John R. Gordner (R-27) to continue to serve as the Majority Whip for the upcoming session of the General Assembly.  As Whip, Senator Gordner’s duties include acting as assistant floor leader, working to gain support for legislation, and assuring that Senate Republican policies are maintained through the cooperative efforts of the majority caucus.

“I was honored to receive the continued support of my colleagues for the position of Whip,” said Senator Gordner. “The challenge of the Republican majority in the Senate is to work with the Wolf Administration, while maintaining the principles that allowed us to increase our majorities in the General Assembly.”

Senator Gordner said those principles include job development, responsible budgeting and maintaining a low tax burden.

Senator Gordner has served in the Senate since 2003, and previously held the positions of Chairman of the Labor and Industry Committee, Majority Caucus Administrator and Majority Caucus Chair.
