Huelskamp To Lead Conservative Think Tank

Joe Denoyer - June 29, 2017 10:42 am

Former Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp, the conservative bomb-thrower who was ousted in his GOP primary last year, will become president of the Heartland Institute, a free-market think tank based just outside of Chicago.

Huelskamp will replace Joseph Bast, who has led the conservative and libertarian-leaning institute since it was founded in 1984.

Huelskamp, 48, will start at Heartland next month. Huelskamp will be leaving Kansas and moving to the Chicago area for this new position.
