Lummis Rallies Behind New House Speaker Ryan

Posted in

Wyoming’s lone Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis says she’s looking forward to returning power to individual members and committees through the election of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House. Ryan is a former GOP vice-presidential candidate.

In a statement released from her office, she says she set out to find a reform minded speaker candidate who would ditch what she called the “reward and punishment” and “command and control” tactics employed in recent years by both sides of the aisle in the House.

According to her recent statement, she believes Ryan represents the best chance to unite House Republicans around restoring integrity to the legislative process and the institution that is the House of Representatives.
