Rep. Mike Johnson elected to U.S. House Speaker

On Wednesday, October 25, Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana was elected U.S. House Speaker with unanimous support from all 220 Republican representatives present, surpassing the required 215 votes needed to win. The nomination process was turbulent, with other Republican contenders dropping out due to lack of support or party divisions. Johnson, in Congress since 2017, had no prior House leadership experience. He is known for his close ties to former President Donald Trump, his involvement in 2020 election challenges, and his advocacy of conservative principles. Johnson’s Democratic counterpart, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, received unanimous support from the 209 Democratic representatives present.
