Rep. Crawford Statement on House Electing Speaker

10/25/2023

Washington  Congressman Rick Crawford (AR-01) released the following statement upon Rep. Mike Johnson (LA-04) winning the election for House Speaker.


“I was pleased to join my colleagues today in electing Mike Johnson as Speaker of the House of Representatives so that we can resume work on addressing the illegal immigration crisis at our southern border, a looming government shutdown in November, and the troubling destabilization in the Middle East that is unfolding following the brutal terrorist attacks against Israel. Solving these difficult problems will require far greater unity in Congress than we have seen recently. But unity is one of our national founding principles and the strength of our nation, indeed, any nation, rests upon this principle.”
