Congressman Tom Reed of Corning supports Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan for House Speaker.
Reed says Ryan would make an excellent Speaker.
Reed said, “Ryan has repeatedly shown his commitment to unifying the Republican Party, the House of Representatives and the nation with a rare courage for leadership.”
CNN is reporting that Ryan has enough support from a key group of house conservatives to be the next speaker, if he still wants the job.
In a closed-door session, more than 70% of the House Freedom Caucus voted in favor of Ryan’s candidacy, but that is short of the 80% needed for an official endorsement, something Ryan has demanded.
