November 12, 2022

Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana has announced that he's going after one of the top roles in the House.

"Scalise, the current minority whip in the U.S. House of Representatives, announced Wednesday afternoon his bid to become Majority Leader as the post-election race for leadership positions begins," reported Breitbart.

"I am so proud to be a part of this House Republican team. Two years ago, we unified around a single goal – taking back the House. Through all the ups and downs, challenges, and adversity, we never lost sight of our target," Scalise said the day after the midterm elections.

"We stayed relentlessly focused on the issues that matter most to the American people, and they responded by delivering us a House Republican Majority," he said. "Now it’s time for us to focus on delivering for the American people who have trusted us with such a great task."

"Through your engagement on the various task forces, we were able to develop the bold, conservative agenda laid out in the Commitment to America. Now it is time to turn that Commitment into action," Scalise said in his letter. "With this bold, conservative agenda in mind, I am asking for your support to be the next House Majority Leader."
