House GOP nominates Ryan as speaker, with Trump's support

Posted November 28, 2016

House Speaker Paul Ryan has been unanimously re-nominated by his party to continue to serve as speaker in the 115th Congress.

House Republicans have nominated Paul Ryan speaker for next Congress, Associated Press reported.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) similarly retained their position with a unanimous vote. He must win a majority of House members - 218 votes - to keep his job, and Republicans will control at least 239 seats.

According to the Post, several Republicans have indicated that although Trump's election may have eased tensions that could threaten Ryan's speakership, they have not eliminated them.

The official roll-call election for House speaker is January 3, when Ryan needs a simple majority of all House members.

On the Democratic side, there was bitterness in defeat as a group of House Democrats pressured Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to delay leadership elections slated for November 17.

A group of House Republicans voiced concerns this week over whether Ryan would support their conservative positions.

Ryan, for his part, said House Republicans would be working "hand in glove" with Trump.

Ryan now begins the hard work of governing with a Republican president-elect he disagreed with on the campaign trail, didn't campaign with and with whom he shares substantial policy differences.

After a tumultuous first year in the top leadership spot - a job he was elected to after then-Speaker John Boehner abruptly resigned - Ryan clashed with both conservatives on the right of the conference and with then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

CAPITOL HILL-Signs of the long, divisive presidential contest that almost tore the Republican Party apart were nowhere to be seen Tuesday.

Trump and the Republicans appear to be in broad agreement on a roadmap that includes replacing President Barack Obama's trademark health care law, building a wall - or fence - on the Mexican border, and slashing taxes. "I'm looking for how we make this work for the American people". "We know that the dreams of empowering families and children remains".

In the Senate, Republicans and Democrats are meeting separately today to formally pick their leadership teams.

Trump and Ryan had bickered during the campaign.

Ryan added that the issue of earmarks should be debated in public and promised they would be revisited early next year. He will be a strong voice for Georgia and the entire Southeast at the leadership table.
