Phil Gingrey Releases Statement on Presidential Cabinet Nomination of U.S. Rep. Tom Price

December 2, 2016

Former Congressman Phil Gingrey issued a statement regarding President-elect Donald J. Trump’s nomination of Tom Price as Secretary of Health and Human Services. Phil and Tom served together in the U.S. House of Representatives, representing Georgia’s 11th and 6th congressional districts, respectively.

"Dr. Tom Price is one of the hardest working public servants that I know. Tom and I represented Georgia together in the House and collaborated together as part of the Doctors Caucus. He is extremely knowledgeable on health care issues, and uniquely qualified to lead the Department of HHS. 

I am thrilled for Tom to be given the honor of a cabinet level nomination and am confident he will be confirmed quickly by the Senate. I look forward to continuing to work with him in his anticipated new role.”
