The House Liberty Caucus was a congressional caucus consisting of conservative, libertarian and libertarian conservative members of the United States House of Representatives. It hosted a bimonthly luncheon in Washington, D.C.[1] The group was founded by Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan and joined by Republican members who wanted to "focus on specific issues like economic freedom, individual liberty, and following the Constitution".[1] During his time in Congress, Jared Polis of Colorado was the only Democratic member of the caucus.[4] The caucus was characterized as "conservative with a libertarian emphasis" and was associated with the Tea Party movement.[2] When the 117th Congress convened, there was not new leadership.[citation needed]

Prior to the formal creation of the House Liberty Caucus, Rep. Ron Paul hosted a luncheon in Washington, D.C. every Thursday for a group of Republican members of the House of Representatives that he called the Liberty Caucus.[5] The group was closely connected to the political action committee known as the Republican Liberty Caucus and "support[ed] individual rights, limited government and free enterprise".[6][better source needed]

After the 112th Congress began and Ron Paul switched his focus to his presidential campaign, his luncheon was replaced by a formal congressional member organization called the House Liberty Caucus and chaired by Justin Amash.[7][8] In June 2014, the caucus supported Raúl Labrador's campaign for House Majority Leader.[9][10]
