RJC Congratulates New House Speaker Mike Johnson

Washington, DC – The RJC congratulates Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) on being elected Speaker of the House of Representatives today. RJC National Chairman Norm Coleman said:

We stand in a difficult moment: our ally Israel is at war with brutal terrorists, Iran is menacing the Middle East, and China and Russia are watching for an opening to achieve their aspirations against American interests. Working Americans are struggling with higher prices for food, fuel, and housing, while millions of illegal aliens are flooding across our southern border.

We need a functioning Congress that can take action to address the many challenges facing America right now. With Speaker Johnson’s leadership, the House can put forward the necessary legislation to get our government and our country back on the right track. We look forward to working with him and Republicans on Capitol Hill in this crucial time.
