Issue One is pleased to welcome former Tennessee Republican Congressman Zach Wamp to the ReFormers Caucus. The ReFormers Caucus is comprised of more than 150 former members of Congress and governors from both sides of the aisle who are dedicated to reducing the influence of money in politics. It is the largest group of former lawmakers ever assembled on behalf of fixing our democracy.
Congressman Wamp served in the House of Representatives for more than 15 years, representing Tennessee’s third district. He was a senior member on the House Appropriations Committee and co-chair of the House Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Caucus. He also founded the Congressional Fitness Caucus.
Congressman Wamp supported campaign finance reform efforts in Congress, namely voting in favor of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, also known as McCain-Feingold.
“Working across the aisle is imperative to effect real change,” said Rep. Wamp. “There is no better cause for both parties to fight for than reducing the undue power special interests, unions and money hold over our lawmakers and government.”
He is now the president and owner of Zach Wamp Consulting, a bipartisan consulting and development firm for a wide range of businesses across the country. Prior to serving in elected office, he worked as a small businessman and a commercial real estate broker.
Congressman Wamp is eager to work with other distinguished colleagues as part of the ReFormers Caucus to reduce the insidious influence of money in politics. We are thrilled to have him on board.
