It’s becoming increasingly difficult to support a party who hates you and ignores you as a voter.
The House Republicans voted for a new Speaker candidate on Tuesday. The Republicans started with eight candidates this morning and after several rounds of secret ballots, it came down to two Republicans.
Rep. Tom Emmer (R-MN)
Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA)
Tom Emmer wants to change the US Constitution to eliminate the Electoral College and let the popular vote and radical left blue states choose the US President.
Tom Emmer reportedly worked against Trump candidates in the 2022 election.
GOP voters overwhelmingly supported Jim Jordan for Speaker but the caucus voted Jordan out on Friday.
Today, on the fifth vote, Tom Emmer won.
Emmer – 117
Other – 5
Present – 1
