A bipartisan group of House lawmakers today announced the creation of the Space Force Caucus, which will be focused on advocating for the new service and educating lawmakers and staffers about the military service on its objectives and priorities.

The caucus will be led by Reps. Doug Lamborn (R-CO), Brian Babin (R-TX), Kendra Horn (D-OK), Mike Waltz (R-FL), and Charlie Crist (D-FL), according to a press release from Lamborn's office.

"This caucus will serve as the chief advocate for our nation's exciting new service, and work closely with the Department of the Air Force and the Space Force to provide opportunities for members and their staff to learn about the vital role the U.S. Space Force plays in maintaining American space power," Lamborn said.

The Senate last month established its own Space Force caucus, co-chaired by Sens. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Cory Gardner (R-CO).
