But the North Carolina lawmaker said he isn’t angry, has no regrets and vowed to continue to vote his conscience.
“I’m not going to sacrifice my integrity for anyone or any party,” Mr. Jones told a gathering of reporters at the Capitol Tuesday. “It’s the price you pay. I didn’t come up here to be a puppet for anyone. And I think the public back in my district, which is the most important, has seen I’m willing to do what I think is right.”
Mr. Jones, who easily won a 10th term to the House last month, and fellow Republican Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona are losing their seats on the House Financial Services Committee, while GOP Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Justin Amash of Michigan will lose their seats on the House Budget Committee.
