Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan. - a supporter of the wind energy production tax credit (PTC) - has been elected to serve as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), which supports and advises current and prospective Republican U.S. Senate candidates in the areas of budget planning, election law compliance, fundraising, communications tools and messaging, research and strategy.

Moran has worked with Gov. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., to extend the PTC, and his election could potentially be a boon for wind energy policy.

"I look forward to working with Leader [Mitch] McConnell and others within our conference to make certain we make the right decisions for our country,” Moran said upon being elected. “I am focused on constructing the right team at the committee and thank Sen. Rob Portman for accepting my invitation to serve as vice chairman of finance to help us acquire the necessary resources for success.

“Thanks also to Senator-elect Ted Cruz for agreeing to serve as vice chairman of NRSC for purposes of grassroots operations and political outreach,” he continued. “Together, we will work to recruit the most qualified and dynamic candidates and raise the resources necessary to make a difference - not just on behalf of Republicans, but on behalf of all Americans.”
