DNC Statement on House Republicans Failing to Elect A Speaker

In response to House Republicans going home for the weekend without electing a speaker of the House, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement: 

“Before most Americans have even finished their work week, House Republicans have already given themselves an early start to the weekend after only getting further away from putting out their own dumpster fire. It seemed like the Chaos Conference reached rock bottom 17 days ago when they ousted their own speaker, but the House GOP spent the last two and a half weeks only further proving to the American people that they are unfit to govern. Instead of working to avoid a looming government shutdown or supporting our allies in Israel and Ukraine, House Republicans have shamefully thrown in the towel – before what will inevitably be another long week of new lows. The American people deserve better.”
