Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise was nominated to be the next Speaker of the House, Wednesday, in a private party vote.
Scalise, 58, beat out Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan with 113 votes to 99, according to CBN. “There is a lot of busy work to do, a lot of work to do on behalf of people who are struggling not only here in America but people all around the world. We have a lot of work to do,” Scalise said following the vote.
But many Republicans are still throwing their support behind Jordan. That means Scalise may not get the 217 votes to affirm his nomination. Scalise can only lose five supporting party members to do.
In-Fighting Has To End
“We can’t afford this dysfunction. The nation can’t afford it. The American people can’t afford it. We need a speaker in the chair. We’re in dangerous times right now. We’re in potentially three global conflicts right now, and we cannot afford to not have a speaker in the chair. And the first bill the speaker told me will be my resolution condemning Hamas and praising in support of Israel,” Republican Texas Rep. Mike McCaul said of the situation.
