Rep. Ralph Norman
Republican holdout Rep. Ralph Norman says he expects a written offer on Thursday night to end the standoff between Kevin McCarthy and the 20 GOP holdouts.
Congress has failed to select a Speaker after 11 votes.
The actions of these principled conservatives who refuse to support Kevin McCarthy is infuriating to party insiders, the Uniparty, lobbyists, and GOP elites.
This hasn’t happened since 1859.
