Congresswoman Kimble Hookstraten is the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, a representative from the state of Missouri and formerly the Majority Whip for the Republican Party. She served on House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security and is on the board of American Enterprise Association. On the night of President Richmond's State of the Union address, she was selected by her party as their "designated survivor."
In the aftermath of the attack and the installation of HUD Secretary Tom Kirkman as President of the United States, Congresswoman Hookstraten strongly supports his authority while secretly harboring her own agenda. The Congresswoman served as presumptive Speaker of the House of Representatives until the special election where she was officially elected to the position by the new House of Representatives.
She is currently President Kirkman's nominee for Secretary of Education.
