Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R‑GA) would not commit to endorsing anyone for speaker of the House.
Greene appeared on Sunday Morning Futures ahead of a vote on speaker anticipated this coming week. Former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R‑CA) was ousted on Tuesday, with eight Republicans voting to vacate him, but Greene was not one of them. Rep. Jim Jordan (R‑OH) has expressed his interest in becoming McCarthy’s replacement, along with House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R‑LA). Greene posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, Sunday to say she wants “a Speaker that will commit to moving on the important issues I lay out.”
