Dan Crenshaw Fails In Bid To Lead Key House Committee

For months, Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas had been in the running to lead the House Committee On Homeland Security. Eventually, it was decided that Rep. Mark Green of Tennessee would be the new chairman.

As a former Army Ranger, Green served his country in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also worked as a flight surgeon for the Night Stalkers, a special operations unit.

According to a report by Politico, a QR code image that was shared by Crenshaw on social media led to a video that he made in support of his candidacy for the chairman position. The topic of the border crisis was also emphasized.

Last week, during the race for House speaker, Crenshaw became the target of criticism after he called out 20 Republican congressmen who would not vote for McCarthy unless certain conditions were met. He then doubled down on his comments, telling Tucker Carlson on Fox News that he should never clutch his pearls.

"In an interview, he said that he was initially taken aback by the way his comments were interpreted. He also apologized to his colleagues, who he said were offended by his statements."

The preceding is a summary of an article that originally appeared on Town Hall.
