The Republican Governance Group, originally the Tuesday Lunch Bunch and then the Tuesday Group until 2020, is a group of moderate Republicans in the United States House of Representatives.[9] It was founded in 1994 in the wake of the Republican takeover of the House; the Republican House caucus came to be dominated by conservatives.[3]

In 2007, the Tuesday Group founded its own political action committee.[10] The name of the PAC was "Tuesday Group Political Action Committee" but has since changed to "Republican Governance Group/Tuesday Group Political Action Committee". It is based in Tampa, Florida.[11]

Another major group of Republican moderates in Congress was the Republican Main Street Caucus, which existed briefly from 2017 to 2019.

Wednesday Group

Members of its predecessor, the Wednesday Group, first founded in the House between 1961 and 1963 and then in the Senate around 1969.[12][13][14]
