Morgan Ortagus


Morgan Ortagus is a seasoned business executive, distinguished public policy and communications professional, and an active U.S. Naval Reserve Officer. From 2019 to 2021 she served at the Department of State as the Spokesperson for the United States of America. In February 2021, Morgan joined Adam Boehler in starting Rubicon Founders, a leading healthcare investment firm.

A veteran of both the Obama and Bush Administrations, Ms. Ortagus was sworn in as U.S. State Department Spokesperson on April 3, 2019 for her third tour of duty in the executive branch. During this time, she worked closely with the White House on the historic Abraham Accords that brought peace deals between Israel and UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan. As Spokesperson, she developed strategic communications plans for every area of U.S. foreign policy. Traveling with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo to more than 50 nations, she coordinated messaging campaigns and responses to sensitive and high-profile foreign policy actions, from hostage negotiations to the U.S. campaign against Huawei’s 5G expansion in the West. She led U.S. government efforts to push back against sophisticated Chinese, Russian, and Iranian disinformation campaigns, and was instrumental in the United States’ determination of the Chinese government’s genocide against the Uyghurs.

In the private sector, Morgan founded Ernst & Young’s Geostrategic Business Group and was a Global Relationship Manager at Standard Chartered Bank in the Public Sector Group covering clients in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. She pioneered a new political risk analysis suite for Ernst & Young’s largest corporate clients. Morgan was also the co-founder and Managing Director of GO Advisors, a National co-Chair of Maverick PAC, and a national security contributor at Fox News.

Morgan began her government service as a public affairs officer at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), where in 2007 she spent several months in Baghdad, Iraq. From 2008-2010, she was an intelligence analyst at the U.S. Treasury in the Office of Intelligence and Analysis. In 2010, she was assigned to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, as the Deputy U.S. Treasury Attaché. Morgan was the principal liaison from the U.S. Treasury to the banking sector in Saudi Arabia.

Morgan earned an honors thesis at Johns Hopkins University for her research on counterinsurgency and graduated from Johns Hopkins in May 2013 with a dual Master of Business Administration/Master of Arts in Government. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Political Science, cum laude, from Florida Southern College.

Congressman Jordan has been a tireless defender of conservative, traditional American ideals represented by the Republican Party and led the fight against an unjust impeachment of President Trump. He has led investigations into federal agencies, including the IRS, and has offered more spending cuts than any other member of Congress. And he is a founder and former Chair of the House Freedom Caucus.

Guest speaker:

Vern Buchannan

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan

is a self-made businessman,

who knows what it takes to

create jobs and jump-start

the economy. He


that America’s greatness

comes from its

entrepreneurial spirit and

pro-growth, free-market policies.

Buchanan is a senior member of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over tax policy, international trade, health care, welfare, and Social Security.  Buchanan is chairman of the Tax Policy Subcommittee, a key panel that oversees the nation’s tax code. He also serves on the subcommittees that oversee Social Security and Medicare.

A tireless champion for small business, Buchanan is an outspoken advocate of reforming the U.S. tax code to make it simpler, fairer and less burdensome to fuel the economy and get Americans back to work.

Realizing the urgency of putting an end to Washington’s out-of-control spending spree, the first bill Buchanan introduced in Congress in 2007 was a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. The measure simply requires the federal government to live within its means just like every family in America.
