U.S. House of Representatives

2018 election

After longtime Republican representative Bob Goodlatte of Virginia's 6th district stated in early November 2017 that he wouldn't seek re-election to another House term,[2] Cline announced his run for the seat.[3] He easily won the general election over Democrat opponent Jennifer Lewis by nearly a twenty-point margin.[4]


On February 27, 2019, Rep. Cline introduced a bill to crack down on illegal aliens who purchase firearms.[5]

While strongly conservative on most issues in the Democrat-led 116th U.S. Congress, Rep. Cline has been noted for his effectiveness in working with representatives from the other party on numerous non-partisan issues,[6] with several of his sponsored bills having been signed into law by President Trump.

Cline strongly opposed[7] and voted against the sham articles of impeachment brought against Donald Trump.[8]

In May 2022, Cline turned to be establishment tool and voted for passing $40 billion to Ukraine war.[9] Though he did reverse this by opposing there enter of Sweden and Finland into NATO.
