Former Soros Group Spokesman Leads Race For GOP House Speaker

Following the secret ballot to oust Jim Jordan from the Speaker’s race, House Republican Kevin McCarthy endorsed Tom Emmer (MN) for House Speaker on Friday afternoon.

Emmer informed members of the House Republican Conference that he would seek nomination for speaker.

This comes after the House of Representatives has been without a Speaker for more than two weeks, as Matt Gaetz filed a motion to vacate the chair and Kevin McCarthy was ousted in a 216-210 vote with eight Republicans voting against him: Biggs, Buck, Burchett, Crane, Gaetz, Good, Mace and Rosendale.

Former Speaker McCarthy came forward Friday evening and endorsed Rep. Tom Emmer for speaker.

“He is the right person for the job. He can unite the conference. He understands the dynamics of the conference. He also understands what it takes to win and keep a majority,” McCarthy said.

Emmer is expected to receive a substantial number of votes from Democrats, given his prior association with the National Popular Vote initiative – an organization funded by George Soros.

The New York Post reported:

The National Popular Vote campaign launched in 2006 to support efforts to overhaul the Electoral College by passing laws that commit state electors to the candidate who wins the national popular vote.

About five years after the initiative’s launch, Emmer took a job as one of the group’s paid spokespeople.

“I believe it’s going to end up favoring Republicans … if you believe in our message,” Emmer said in a 2011 video interview posted on the website of Pennsylvania public affairs firm Triad Strategies.

There is even video of Emmer promoting the National Popular Vote.

Caroline Wren says a voter for Tom Emmer is a vote for Jack Smith’s investigation.
