Speaker-designate Kurt Daudt and Majority Leader-elect Joyce Peppin announced their leadership team Tuesday. The Republican caucus, newly in the majority after last month’s election, elected Rep. Dan Fabian to be majority whip. The whip traditionally counts and rounds up stray votes on the House floor.

The caucus also elected six assistant majority leaders. They are first term Rep.-elect Dave Baker and Reps. Deb Kiel, Ron Kresha, Kathy Lohmer, Tim Sanders and Chris Swedzinski.  

Republicans have also announced committee chairs, staff and set the committee schedule.
