Ben Cline sworn in as member of Congress

Ben Cline was sworn in Thursday as the 35th congressman to represent the Sixth Congressional District of Virginia.

A resident of Rockbridge County, Cline was elected in November to fill the seat of retiring Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who had held the seat since 1993.

Cline previously served the 24th District in the Virginia House of Delegates from 2002-2018, where he chaired the Conservative Caucus and the Committee on Militia, Police, and Public Safety.

“I am humbled to go to work today as the new representative for the people of the 6th Congressional District of Virginia,” Cline said. “My constituents sent me to Washington to be their voice on issues important to the Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Valley. As congressman, I will stand up for the middle class, the Constitution, and our rights and liberties that we are responsible for defending.”
