Bio

Rep. Veasey is an advocate for Texas' middle-class families and is committed to creating jobs, improving public education, fighting for immigration reform, and ensuring access to quality healthcare and women's reproductive rights. Congressman Veasey was appointed in the 116th Congress to serve on the Committee on Energy and Commerce. Prior to his new committee appointments, Rep. Veasey served on the Armed Services Committee and the Committee on Science Space and Technology.

Throughout his time in Congress, Rep. Veasey founded the first Congressional Voting Rights Caucus to address the immediate need to eliminate the barriers and discrimination too many Americans face at the polls. In the 114th Congress, he accepted his appointment as an Assistant and Regional Whip. In the 116th Congress, the Congressman was appointed to serve as a Whip for the Gun Violence Prevention Taskforce.

Rep. Veasey is currently a member of the U.S. Helsinki Commission, Congressional Black Caucus and the New Democrat Coalition. He also co-launched the Blue Collar Caucus with Congressman Brendan Boyle to find solutions to problems too many middle-class Americans are facing. The Blue Collar Caucus supports unions and focuses on addressing wage stagnation, offshoring, and job insecurity for those in the manufacturing and building trades.

First elected to the Texas State House in 2004, Congressman Veasey represented District 95 - an area now part of the 33rd Congressional District. As a member of the Texas State House, Rep. Veasey served in a number of leadership positions including Democratic Whip and Chair of the Democratic Caucus. Issues he championed included fighting for affordable healthcare, funding for better schools, and advocating for a livable wage. Prior to serving four terms in the Texas House of Representatives, Rep. Veasey worked as a congressional staffer in North Texas for Congressman Martin Frost.

The Congressman was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. He and his wife Tonya live in the Metroplex and have a thirteen-year-son, Adam.

Rep. Veasey earned a BS from Texas Wesleyan University, where he majored in Mass Communication.
