Malliotakis on Election of Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11) released the following statement celebrating the election of Congressman Mike Johnson (LA-04) as 56th Speaker of the House:
“As someone who has publicly and privately advocated for an end to the House’s stalemate, I’m pleased to see our conference finally come together and elect Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House.

As Vice Chairman of the Republican Conference, Mike Johnson has proven to be the team-builder who can unite our conference across the Republican spectrum and he will take the Democrat-controlled Senate and White House head on to get conservative wins for the American people. 

With our ally Israel at war and 23 days until our government runs out of funding, the American people are counting on House Republicans to hold the Biden Administration accountable and responsibly fund our government, reduce wasteful spending, secure our southern border, and help defeat the Iranian-backed terror that has claimed American lives. Let’s get to work.”
