First things first.
Good one Jerry, especially pointing out that Mr. Jeffries won't likely be the Speaker until we have a Democratic majority. I'm calling my Congresswoman today because we need more than just the 8 to be able to govern effectively and there is a 'key log' somewhere in this jam.
This gives me hope. Thank you, I’m glad the reasonable people are still working in the background.
Jerry - what is your opinion of Austin Scott? Seems like he is a conservative but not a looney.
Jerry, The chatter to find a cross-party mutually agreeable Republican candidate for House Speaker seems to be popping up in a number of places. Congratulations! I would note that for good measure, once again, I posted an appeal on HCR’s LFAA to make phone calls based on your list, and the posting has produced substantial traffic.
Postscript: I write to add, in my view, the poor show of support on Thursday for Jim Jordan could also be a devastating repudiation of Donald Trump, who endorsed Jordan, particularly if the House comes through with a consensus speaker.
I've been pestering my Ohio Rep., Dave Joyce, on an almost daily basis. So far, he won't respond directly regarding his running for Speaker, or endorsing Jerry's concept, but he hasn't said no, either. I've also told him that if we find out he voted for Jordan, he's out of a job come Nov. '24.
