The Turkey Caucus
The Congressional Caucus on U.S.-Turkey Relations and Turkish Americans, better known as the Turkey Caucus, was established in 2001 as a bi-partisan platform for members of Congress to focus on U.S.-Turkey relations and issues that concern Turkish Americans.
The caucus has a total of 155 members and is one of the largest bilateral relations/ethnic group caucuses in Congress. The 5 states with the largest representation in the Turkey Caucus are: Texas (15), North Carolina (10), New York (9), Indiana (8), and Georgia (7). The goal is to reach 158 members in 2016 and beat the previous record of 157 members.
