Washington, D.C. – Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) issued the following statement on today’s Election for Speaker of the House:

“Congratulations to Mike Johnson on being elected the 56th Speaker of the House. A principled and proven conservative leader, Mike is respected across the board, and he is the right man at the right time to unite our Conference and advance our Republican vision for America.

“Now that this Speaker election is finally behind us, we immediately need to get back to governing and delivering on the people’s business. That means securing the southern border President Biden has flung wide open, supporting Israel, finishing our appropriations bills, lowering inflation, and restoring fiscal responsibility.

“I look forward to working with Speaker Johnson to fight back against President Biden’s far-left agenda and deliver conservative, commonsense solutions for Hoosiers.”
