WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steve King released the following statement to express his call for open dialogue and a deliberate process to elect a new Speaker of the House Representatives:

“The House of Representatives is now tasked with electing a new Speaker,” said King. “This is both a great opportunity and responsibility. Before electing a new Speaker of the House, Members need to hear from all candidates on their strategy for dealing with an obstinate President, vision for restoring the soul of America and ideas on adhering to regular order.

To best facilitate an open process, I encourage Members to engage all candidates for Speaker on their proposed strategy and tactics in confronting the many challenges our Conference faces. There is no immediate rush to elect a new Speaker and this provides all of us an opportunity to weigh the decision carefully. I want to know from each candidate how they are going to restore Article I Constitutional authority to Congress and how they plan to defund Planned Parenthood, the Iran deal, the President’s DACA and DAPA, and ObamaCare. Questions like these deserve answers and an open dialogue will help us get them. We need a Speaker who can offer a bold vision that inspires our Conference as well as the American people we represent, and I look forward to a fresh strategy and new beginning.”
