Wagner Statement on Speaker Race
October 16, 2023
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO) released the following statement on the House Speaker’s race:
“Let me be clear, I am not, and will not, work with Democrats as our Republican Conference comes together to elect a conservative Speaker of the House.
“Too much is at stake to hand control of the House over to radical liberal Democrats, which is why we must elect a conservative as the next Speaker. Throughout my time in Congress, I have always been a team player and supported our Republican nominees out of Conference.
“Jim Jordan and I spoke at length again this morning, and he has allayed my concerns about keeping the government open with conservative funding, the need for strong border security, our need for consistent international support in times of war and unrest, as well as the need for stronger protections against the scourge of human trafficking and child exploitation.
“Jim Jordan is our conference nominee, and I will support his nomination for Speaker on the House floor.”
Today’s establishment GOP, with the principles, fortitude, and spine of a wet noodle.
