Matt Gaetz promised he will resign from Congress if Democrats and Republicans work together to elect a moderate Republican to be speaker of the House.
Rep. Gaetz (R-FL) joined Laura Ingraham on Fox News to reaffirm his never-McCarthy viewpoints. Gaetz is one of 21 McCarthy defectors, leaving the California rep. 16 votes short of achieving a majority and being elected Speaker.
Laura Ingraham asked Rep. Gaetz if he would be okay with a deal between Democrats and Republicans to elect a Speaker. “Are you going to be OK, congressman – would you be OK if there’s a deal struck with moderate Democrats that give Democrats co-control of the committees? You’re fine with that?”
“Absolutely not. That will not happen,” Gaetz responded, before explaining how he believes that scenario will not play out.
