CLF Congratulates Speaker Mike Johnson

Congressional Leadership Fund President Dan Conston released the following statement on Mike Johnson being elected as the next Speaker of the House:

“Congratulations to the 56th Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson! I’ve seen firsthand his thoughtfulness, his deep policy base, and his ability to unite, all of which will aid us this cycle. From policy to fundraising to recruitment, Speaker Kevin McCarthy laid a tremendous foundation to expand the Republican majority, and Speaker Johnson is well-positioned to pick up the baton and carry it over the finish line. When the dust settles, not a single competitive House race has changed. Our targeted incumbents are strong and have cultivated individual brands, our recruits are far superior to theirs, and Democrats continue to embrace toxic policies far from the mainstream. Republicans remain in an excellent position to hold and grow the majority next fall.” – CLF President Dan Conston
