Report: Johnson among 23 of Capitol Hill's most influential 'changemakers'
Sen. Rounds' work on artificial intelligence also recognized in The Hill's inaugural list of those 'driving and shaping the conversation at the Capitol and beyond.'
It’s no secret to South Dakotans paying attention to politics that Dusty Johnson is pragmatic.
The third-term Congressman doesn’t go out of his way to pick fights with Democrats or his fellow Republicans. But that hasn’t spared him from being at the center of numerous high-profile squabbles on Capitol Hill this year.
But as the Pierre native continues to act as intra-party broker while the GOP continues to search for harmony in the U.S. House of Representatives, the national press are beginning to take notice.
Johnson this week was named one of the Beltway’s most influential by The Hill, a leading political newspaper in Washington, D.C. that Wednesday unveiled its “inaugural list recognizing the power players and under-the-radar staffers and operators of Washington who have made a difference in driving and shaping the conversation at the Capitol and beyond.”
“Rep. Dusty Johnson (R-S.D.) has found himself at the center of nearly every battle in the House GOP conference this year, working to unify the fractious group and shift the narrative that the current class of House Republicans is ungovernable,” wrote The Hill’s Mychael Schnell.
