Fox News host Laura Ingraham lays out three ways the House GOP can go about picking a speaker while Republicans stall in “The Ingraham Angle.”
LAURA INGHAM: There are basically three scenarios that are possible now. First, the Freedom Caucus sees McCarthy’s concessions as essentially a win, and many of them support him as speakers. Second, McCarthy could resign and allow another candidate to be proposed as speaker, one who could likely receive 218 votes. We heard the name of a number of people Steve Scalise is one of them, but others could also arise. There is a third scenario. Moderate Republicans and mainstream Republicans could strike a deal with Democrats that would actually designate McCarthy or another Republican as speaker, but essentially both parties share power on the committees.
MCCARTHY, HOUSE FREEDOM CAUCUS DISCUSS CONCESSIONS TO IMPRESS 20 REPUBLICAN VOTERS
The people who are against McCarthy should realize that they are playing with fire here. And you have to think of it like this: Did one of them promise the voters during the election campaign that if they had a majority in the House of Representatives, they would be willing to hand over power to them? the democrats if they have not asserted themselves in some points? I’m not saying the points aren’t important, but I don’t think they fought for them, although they fought on principle. And what do you think the voters will say if that happens in the end? And eventually, as this goes on day-to-day, there may be other problems, and I’m talking about serious problems that Republicans could be blamed for.
