WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. French Hill (AR-02) today released the following statement after Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04) was elected Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
“As Vice-Chairman of our House Republican Conference and former Republican Study Committee Chairman, Rep. Mike Johnson has been an effective communicator with members of the House during his time in Congress. I supported Rep. Johnson as our new Speaker of the House and believe he will be a unifying bridge for our conference. I thank my friend Rep. Patrick McHenry for his exemplary leadership as Speaker Pro Tempore during this unprecedented time and former Speaker Kevin McCarthy for securing a Republican majority and delivering on our conference's conservative promises. Our conference will focus on passing the remaining appropriations bills and returning to our important work on behalf of the American people.”
