Bob Birch is the current Democratic (Minority) Leader and former Speaker of the House of Representatives. A member of the Democratic Party, he represents a congressional district in Michigan.


In Season 1, Bob Birch is Speaker of the House in the Democratic controlled United States House of Representatives. Frank Underwood manipulates him to completely reshuffle the Democratic Leadership in Congress, and pass the education bill.

In Season 3, due to a Republican success in the 2014 Midterm Elections, Birch loses his place as Speaker and becomes the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives. He, along with Terry Womack and Jackie Sharp oppose the idea of Frank Underwood seeking re-election in 2016, preferring the party to be represented by a 'fresh face'.
