The House of Representatives is set to vote for a new Speaker of the House today at noon ET, following the historic removal of Kevin McCarthy on October 3.
Conservatives across the United States have been rallying behind Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in response to the news that eight Republicans in Name Only (RINOs) are withholding their votes for Jordan. This activism has resulted in a surge of citizen engagement on Capitol Hill as thousands of calls flood the offices of these eight representatives. The RINOs are facing intense pressure from constituents who demand their support for Jordan, and the spotlight is firmly on them.
The establishment’s strategy is to stonewall Jim Jordan, with the hopes that conservatives will revert back to Kevin McCarthy, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz in a recent interview. However, conservative activists are not easing up and are determined to secure Jordan’s appointment as Speaker of the House.
To further increase the pressure on these eight representatives, citizens are encouraged to contact them immediately and demand their support for Jordan. The representatives in question are Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE), Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Carlos Giménez (R-FL), Rep. Frank Lucas (R-OK), Rep. John Rutherford (R-FL), Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID), Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR), and Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO). Additionally, citizens can contact Congress as a whole at 202-224-3121.
There are rumors that Rep. Frank Lucas has already changed his vote to a yes, but it is advised to contact him regardless. The urgency of the situation is underscored by radio show host Glenn Beck, who passionately called on voters to intensify the pressure on Republican lawmakers. He urged them to make it clear to their representatives that compromising and electing a Speaker in bed with the Democrats would have severe consequences, including funding competitors and actively campaigning against them.
The vote is scheduled to take place at noon Eastern time. To watch the live vote on the House floor, the stream below provided by RSBN can be accessed. This will be the first floor vote since McCarthy’s removal, making it a significant moment in American politics.
Citizen activism and engagement have reached a new high in response to the Speaker of the House election. The outcome of this vote will shape the course of the Republican Party and have significant implications for the future of conservative politics in the United States.
