Within the U.S. House of Representatives, the House Freedom Caucus is a group of lawmakers considered the most conservative bloc of the House GOP.

U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) declared his intention to be a member before being elected to the U.S. House in 2020.

As it stands in the current 117th Congress, 43 of the 212 Republicans in the House are members of the House Freedom Caucus.

During an interview with Mobile radio FM Talk 106.5's "The Jeff Poor Show," Moore said he expected the House Freedom Caucus to continue to grow.

"I was actually at dinner with Jim Jordan last night," Moore said. "We were talking about that. I think there's an opportunity as my class -- we joined the House Freedom Caucus when we came in. It was kind of that populist class. A lot of us were kind of outside the system if you will. We weren't endorsed by all the great agencies and groups. And we didn't have all the money, but the American people really loved the message of 'America first.'

"And so, we kind of represent that vox populi, the voice of the real people -- not the process, not the special interests but the people themselves," Moore continued. "I see that trend continuing, Jeff. I think we'll continue to see House Freedom Caucus-type members elected. And as the House Freedom Caucus, that brand builds, and as we endorse and try to establish those around the country, I think it's an opportunity to try to build a true conservative voice-of-the-people-type of candidates and have a bigger say in the process on the Hill."
