Hinson Would Support Scalise Or Jordan For House Speaker

Iowa — Iowa Congresswoman Ashley Hinson has been back in her district on the recess following the ouster of the House Speaker.

The Republican says she supports Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise as the next speaker. Ohio Representative Jim Jordan is getting some support, and Hinson says she would be okay with that.

Hinson can’t say if there will be any consensus among House Republicans when they meet to select the new speaker.

Hinson says Republicans saw what can happen when eight members join with all the Democrats to oust a Republican Speaker. She says that is “abhorrent and shouldn’t be allowed to happen going forward.”

At last report, Congressman Randy Feenstra of Hull has not publicly committed to a candidate for speaker.
