WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Representative Jason Smith (Mo.) released the following statement congratulating U.S. Representative Mike Johnson (La.) on being elected Speaker of the House:

“House Speaker Mike Johnson is a proven conservative who is honorable, smart, and will do a great job leading the House Republican Conference. As the leader of the conservative Republican Study Committee and as Vice Chairman of the House Republican Conference, he’s done a good job of bringing together members of different viewpoints to deliver conservative victories for the American people. I’m excited to work hand-in-hand with Speaker Johnson to advance the policies we need to secure our southern border, increase support for Israel, and bring relief to working-class Americans who are struggling to get by in President Joe Biden’s economy.”
