Representative Rosendale of Montana will support Speaker contender following Tuesday’s forum



Billings, Montana – Following the decision to remove Speaker Speaker, Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-Mont., who visited Billings on Friday, predicted that tensions and ill will would run high for the next few days.

He believes that Congress will be able to approve the budget.

The Speaker of the House was voted out of office for the first time ever.

It remains to be seen who will take Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) seat.

“I am very interested to hear everyone speak and then I will make my determination after that,” Rosendale said.

Representatives Jodey Arrington (R-Texas), Kevin Hern (R-Oklahoma), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), and Steve Scalise (R-La./Majority Leader) are the candidates running for the position, according to Rosendale.

According to Rosendale, he intends to support someone following the Tuesday candidate forum.

Who Rep. Ryan Zinke, R-Mont., will support is likewise unknown.

Congresswoman Harriet Hageman declares her support for Jordan.

“Jim Jordan is the definition of a solid conservative and a truly effective leader,” Hageman stated in a news release. “We desperately need a conservative leader who will fight against the growth of government, against increased government spending, and against the Swamp that controls Washington. Jim has been doing that his entire career.”
During a visit to Missoula on Thursday, former Wyoming congresswoman Liz Cheney addressed the topic of former President Trump as a potential replacement.

“It’s a very small number who really believe yes, with Donald Trump,” Cheney said. “I mean, it may be two. One of them might be one of your representatives here in Montana.”

“I would certainly support President Trump,” said Rosendale. “I just don’t know that that’s the highest and best use of his talents and skills right now while we are going to need someone to fill that void in the President’s office during the ’24 election.”

Rosendale stated that with Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., serving as speaker pro tempore, the House can have committee meetings, work on appropriations bills, and adopt the budget before Thanksgiving.
