On this episode of Common Good, our guest is Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE), who has represented Nebraska’s third district in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2007. Since winning reelection last fall, he recently began his fifth term in office, serving on the House Committee of Ways and Means.
In our conversation, Congressman Smith describes his journey into politics and explains how his faith affects his approach to public service. We also discuss the outlook for Washington politics at the start of a new congressional term—touching on what he sees as the greatest policy challenge facing America. And more personally, he shares about his recent marriage, describing how he manages to balance his personal life with an incredibly busy work life.
