Rep. Troy Nehls Will Nominate Former President Trump for Speaker of the House

October 4, 2023

In a stunning announcement, Rep. Troy Nehls (R-Texas) has revealed his intention to nominate former President Donald J. Trump as the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. Nehls made this announcement late on Tuesday, setting the stage for an unprecedented turn of events in the House.

Nehls, a staunch Trump supporter, stated, “President Trump, the greatest President of my lifetime, has a proven record of putting America First and will make the House great again.” This move comes in the wake of the historic vote that ousted Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) from the role of Speaker, with eight Republicans joining all Democrats in the decision. Notably, Nehls voted against the efforts to remove McCarthy.

One key point of interest is that the Speaker of the House is not obligated to be a sitting member of Congress, although historically, no Speaker has held the position without being a member. This move also follows Trump’s previous statement that he was not interested in the top job, stating, “No, it’s not something I want to do. I want to look at what’s happening, and then we’re going to be doing something else. No, it’s not something I would be interested in.”

However, Rep. Greg Steube (R-Fla.) has voiced support for Trump as Speaker, adding another layer of intrigue to this evolving situation. Meanwhile, McCarthy has declared that he will not seek the position of Speaker again. The Republican conference will hold a candidate forum next Tuesday to select their nominee for the role, with Speaker Pro Tem Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) presiding over the proceedings.

This unexpected turn of events is sure to shake up the political landscape in Washington, D.C., and raise questions about the future direction of the Republican Party. Stay tuned for further developments as this story unfolds.
