WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, December 16th, 2020, Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01) was unanimously re-elected as a Vice Chair of the Bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus. The Problem Solvers Caucus is a bipartisan group in Congress comprising 50 members, 25 Democrats and 25 Republicans, who are committed to forging bipartisan cooperation on key issues. Given the historically tight margins in both the House and the Senate, this caucus is expected to play an expanded key governing role in the 117th Congress. 

“I am honored to have been unanimously re-elected as a Co-Vice Chair of the Bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus by my colleagues. Hyper-partisanship is the single biggest threat facing our nation. Bipartisanship is the only remedy that will save and heal our nation,” said Fitzpatrick. “The Problem Solvers Caucus has consistently and successfully worked to increase bipartisanship and unity in Congress. I look forward to continuing to work with my bipartisan colleagues to break the gridlock, forge consensus on critical issues, and bring an end to the era of hyper-partisanship in Washington.”

“I'm thrilled that my great friend and colleague Brian Fitzpatrick has been re-elected as Vice Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), Co-Chair for the Problem Solvers Caucus. “Year after year, Brian has played a key role in bringing both sides of the aisle together, to help break the gridlock in Congress, and deliver legislation to help the American people.”

“Brian is a true public servant who throughout his tenure in Congress has always put the interests of the people first. We are thrilled that Brian has been re-elected to Problem Solvers Vice-Chair, and are honored to work alongside such a dedicated and hard-working Member,” said Congressman Tom Reed (NY-23), Co-Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus.  As Vice-Chair, he will continue to play an integral role in the Caucus’ efforts to break the gridlock and refocus Washington’s priorities back towards the American people.”

“For the last four years, I’ve had the privilege of working alongside Congressman Fitzpatrick to help bridge the divide, unify our country, and address the COVID-19 crisis head-on,” said Congressman Tom Suozzi (NY-03), Vice Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus. “I have full faith that Congressman Fitzpatrick will work tirelessly to bring Democrats and Republicans together while addressing the biggest issues of the year ahead.”
