Congresswoman Hinson (IA-02) released the following statement in support of Steve Scalise as the next Speaker of the House.
“We need a Speaker who will unite our historically thin majority so we can put the drama behind us and help deliver the most conservative legislation possible as we are faced with several looming and important deadlines. Steve Scalise is the right person for the job and has my full support to be our Speaker.
“Not only is Steve a principled conservative, he has overcome adversity far beyond the infighting in our Conference right now. He has the grit, strength, and faith to lead us and deliver for the American people.
“Steve shared with me his forward-looking vision to unite Republicans, bring conservative spending bills to the Floor, and advance the priorities of Iowans. He loves our country, understands our Conference, and is uniquely positioned to protect and grow our Republican majority.” – Congresswoman Ashley Hinson
