WASHINGTON, DC – The Ripon Society hosted a luncheon discussion on Monday afternoon with Nate Hodson, the Republican staff director for the energy and commerce committee, who spoke not only about the agenda before the committee E&C, but the agenda on Capitol Hill for the rest of this year.

Hodson is a veteran congressional aide having served in a number of positions for senior members of the House and Senate. He worked as Kentucky’s finance director on Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell’s campaign from 2007 to 2008. He then moved to Washington DC where he served as communications director for Kentucky Congressman Brett Guthrie. Beginning in August 2009, he went to work for a year as a campaign manager for Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson in his bid for the United States Senate.

In January 2011, Hodson joined Nebraska Congressman Adrian Smith’s team as director of communications. For just over a year, beginning in 2011, he served as director of regional and state media relations for the super PAC, American Crossroads. Hodson has been MP Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ right-hand man since she was first elected Speaker of the House Republican Conference in 2012. For nearly a decade, he has worked alongside the MP on various titles, ranging from Director of Communications to Chief of Staff. Hodson has served in his current role as Republican People Director for E&C since 2021.

“Nate has seen and done a lot in his impressive career,” said Jim Conzelman, president and CEO of the Ripon Society. “We appreciate that he took the time to be with us on Monday to discuss the Energy and Commerce Committee agenda and the legislative outlook on Capitol Hill for the remainder of the year. fighting inflation to preparing for the next pandemic to increasing energy production here at home, the Energy and Commerce Committee is at the forefront of efforts to increase the economic health and well-being of the American people and the American economy.As Republican Chief of Staff, Nate helps lead this effort, and we appreciate hearing from him.
