Pat Meehan will bring a valued perspective to the committee work. As a former prosecutor with an exemplary record of rooting out government fraud and abuse, Congressman Meehan will work to produce fiscally responsible legislation to improve our infrastructure, protect the taxpayers and create jobs

Even more impressively, this week he was named Chair of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. Pretty good for a freshman representative.
"He definitely stood out as a leader...He walked into a room, and you knew that was a guy you wanted on your side."

I know that Pat is steadfastly committed to protecting our homeland from the terrorists who continue to plot and execute attacks against our nation. Pat, one of the rare freshman Members of Congress to assume a committee leadership role, is immensely qualified to lead the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence.
Chairman, Homeland Security Committee
“Pat Meehan is one of our majority-makers, and there is no doubt that Pennsylvania’s 7th District will be a battleground in 2012. The Democrats...face a tough, skilled leader whose campaign will give them no place to hide.”
Chairman, National Republican Congressional Committee
