Steve Scalise wins GOP nomination for next speaker of the House

House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) was nominated by House Republicans on Wednesday to become the next Speaker of the House.

The final tally for the secret ballot vote was 113 for Scalise and 99 for Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) despite Jordan receiving former President Donald Trump’s endorsement last week.

The vote was held in a closed-door meeting where no cellphones were allowed.

“We need to make sure we’re sending a message to people all throughout the world that the House is open and doing the people’s business,” Scalise said after the vote.

He added that there was “a lot of important work to do on behalf of people who are struggling not only here in America, but who are concerned all around the world.”

“We’re going to provide that vision,” he said. “We have a lot of work to do, obviously.”

To become Speaker of the House, Scalise will need to earn 217 votes which is the threshold for a simple majority assuming all members are present.

Some Republicans did not want to move forward with bringing Scalise forward until they were sure that they had 217 votes within their own party.

Republicans have a narrow lead in the House over the Democrats, 221-212.

“I think it is foolish to rush this to the floor unless you have 217 votes,” said Rep. Mike Lawler (R-NY). “It’ll be interesting.”

The House will reportedly recess on Wednesday afternoon and there are no plans for a vote, however, one could happen.

  • See straight says:

    Thanks to the punk Matt Gaetz and the 8 republicans, we still don’t have a speaker. This motion to recall is a bunch of shit. No speaker is going to get 100% of what everybody wants. These Republican need to get on board with Scalise like Jim Jordan is asking for.

  • Me says:

    This is the MOST APPROPRIATE venue for DonnieDOTARD to exact his VENGEANCE!

    DonnieDOTARD needs to be the next Speaker of the House, not ANOTHER RINO or RINETTE!

  • Wes says:

    Scalise is a good man but he’s not as strong as Jordan when it comes to holding the Democrats accountable. The Republicans are not united and that makes them ineffective.

  • Grant says:

    This tells you all you need to know that most Republicans in congress are RINO’s now. They’re quickly putting in Scalise instead of someone who’ll actually fight for conservative principles like Jordan and hold out against the enemy if need be. Instead, they’ll continue to always give in to what the democrats want while calling it a “win, win” for all parties and hoping were just to fucking stupid to notice because they’re not that much different than the other swamp creatures on the other side of the aisle. Yeah, I see a real good fu future here for the rest of us real folk.

  • Boycotter says:

    Scalise will roll over just like McCarthy. Jordan is who we need.
