Congressional career

"A member of the House Republican leadership team, Camp serves as a deputy majority whip to help ensure the Republicans' agenda is passed. Camp managed the successful campaign of Rep. J. Dennis Hastert (IL-16) to become Speaker of the House and is a member of the Steering Committee, which determines the chairmanship and membership of House committees."[1]

According to his website biography, "Camp is dedicated to keeping the trust and representing the values of his constituents in mid-Michigan. A fiscal conservative, he has been named a "taxpayer hero" by Citizens Against Government Waste. His voting record has also earned him a perfect score from Citizens for a Sound Economy and the Spirit of Enterprise award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce."[2]
