Congresswoman-elect Debbie Lesko is expected to join the conservative wing of the House once she officially joins the chamber, Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows told The Hill.
Lesko defeated Democrat Hiral Tipirneni in Tuesday night's special election in Arizona to fill the seat vacated by the disgraced Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned in the wake of sexual misconduct late last year.
"We look forward to having her join our ranks as a strong contributing member of the Freedom Caucus when she gets sworn in as a new member of Congress," Meadows told The Hill on Wednesday.
"We have every expectation an invitation to join the caucus will be made and that she will gladly accept."
