Gowdy Statement on Speaker Vote
Rep. Gowdy (R-SC) released this statement on the Speaker vote:
"Had our flight not been cancelled, I would have voted for our Conference nominee, John Boehner. The position of Speaker of the House is a difficult job as evidenced by the fact that so few members seek the position. Speaker Boehner was approved overwhelmingly by the Conference in November. In fact, not a single other name was placed in nomination."
