Congress has largest Southern Baptist representation comment (0)

November 29, 2012


WASHINGTON — Southern Baptist representation in Congress increased in the latest election — its greatest in recent history.

Each Southern Baptist up for re-election in the Senate and House of Representatives held his seat Nov. 6. In addition, five members of Southern Baptist churches won races as nonincumbents.

Five Southern Baptists joined the House of Representatives, bringing the total to 35. One Southern Baptist church member gained election to the Senate, making the total six. 

The number of Southern Baptist representatives appears to be a record — based on a review of election results since 1994, when a surge of Southern Baptist and other evangelical Christian candidates for Congress began. That total of House members, coupled with the number of senators, seemingly would add up to the largest Southern Baptist contingent ever in Congress.
