Sean Hannity hardest hit
Despite Sean Hannity’s calls for a new Speaker of the House, House Republicans unanimously voted Ryan into his first full term.
From the Washington Examiner:
House Republicans on Tuesday unanimously nominated Paul Ryan to serve his first full term as speaker in the next Congress, casting aside the fears of some conservatives that he would not carry out President-elect Trump’s populist agenda.
The GOP conference, bolstered by their Nov. 8 sweep of Congress and the White House, voted to keep much of the entire 2016 leadership team in place for the next two years.
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., and Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers were easily nominated to new terms.
Ryan’s position, however, will not be secured until January, when the entire House, including Democrats, must vote to elect the speaker with 218 votes.
