With the chaos continuing in the GOP-led House over who will be the next speaker, U.S. Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene called on fellow Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz and the seven other Republican lawmakers who got them into this mess to apologize.
Appearing on Fox Business, Greene was asked by host Larry Kudlow to “handicap the race” and explain when there may be a speaker in place.
“Back in 1855, the Congress went two months with 133 ballots trying to elect a speaker of the House,” she replied. “Maybe that’s what we go through again because I think – and I would argue – the GOP is going through a big change. And it needs to be an America First change. That’s what Republican voters want and that’s what the American people want, and that’s what our country needs.”
After discussing some of the possible candidates, Greene turned her attention to the Gang of Eight Republican lawmakers, led by Gaetz, who voted with Democrats to remove former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).
“So, we’re gonna have to get back in the room and see who’s willing to run and be a candidate for speaker,” Greene told Kudlow. “But I also hope the eight Republicans who joined the Democrats and ousted Kevin McCarthy, they need to apologize and we need to heal our conference in order to move forward.”
On Tuesday, House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) emerged ever so briefly as the party’s nominee, before Team MAGA loudly objected. He was followed later in the day by U.S. Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), as the latest Republican nominee.
Johnson is the fourth candidate nominated by the GOP caucus. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) was the first nominee, followed by U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
