WASHINGTON — Freshman Rep. Ann Wagner is new to Capitol Hill — and, she claimed Tuesday, new to the ways of Washington.
“I’m a freshman,” Wagner said during a press conference with House Republican leadership Tuesday. “I’m new. I was sworn in just three weeks ago as a member of the 113th Congress.”
“I don’t know how they do things in Washington, DC,” she added.
But beginning in 2001, Wagner served as co-chair to the Republican National Committee for four years. She also served as the ambassador to Luxembourg for four years after that — a position that requires a presidential nomination and Senate confirmation.
Wagner was elected in November to succeed former Missouri Rep. Todd Akin in Congress after he vacated his seat to run for Senate.
