Rep. Gomez Statement on House GOP Electing MAGA Extremist Mike Johnson as Speaker

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Congressman Jimmy Gomez (CA-34) released the following statement:

“The GOP succumbed to the radical wing of their party and voted election denier Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House. Johnson is a MAGA extremist who helped fuel the January 6 insurrection, believes women and the LGBTQ community don’t deserve rights, and is another puppet to Donald Trump. I urge my Republican colleagues to give actual governing a try, rather than continuing down the path of extremism and allowing their party to fall more out of touch with the American people. We are ready to get to work—we hope they’ll step up and join us.”
