We're Off to the Races (Again)

A new field of House Republicans running for speaker is set

A group of (largely) familiar faces have declared themselves candidates for House speaker ahead of a 6 p.m. candidate forum, House Conference Chair Elise Stefanik announced.

Those include:

  • Rep. Mike Johnson (La.)
  • Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (Tenn.)
  • Rep. Byron Donalds (Fla.)
  • Rep. Mark Green (Tenn.)
  • Rep. Roger Williams (Texas)

Their entrance comes after House Majority Whip Tom Emmer dropped out shortly after landing his party's nomination earlier Tuesday.
