Biography

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick represents Pennsylvania’s 1st congressional district.

Rep. Fitzpatrick did not join many House Republicans in signing onto the failed Texas amicus brief that sought to overturn the presidential election results. Rep. Fitzpatrick was also not a Republican member of Congress that objected to the counting of electoral college votes in any state.

However, while Republicans across the country spread false information about voter fraud and election irregularities, Rep. Fitzpatrick decided to remain silent.

Rep. Fitzpatrick also chose to not hold President Trump accountable for his actions that led to the Jan. 6 insurrection on the United States Capitol building and did not vote to impeach. In a statement, he wrote that holding President Trump accountable for his rhetoric and actions would “further divide and inflame tensions in our nation.”

Rep. Fitzpatrick voted in support of the bipartisan commission proposal to investigate the Jan. 6 insurrection.
