Rep. Tom Emmer Wins House GOP Speaker Nomination

Republicans picked Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., as their nominee for House speaker on Tuesday, as they try for a third time to fill the top leadership position and get Congress back to work.

But here’s what Trump says about Emmer:

Emmer, the GOP Whip and senior-most candidate, jumped out front in private balloting as the top vote-getter among the hodge-podge list of mostly lesser-known congressmen for speaker, a powerful position second in line to the presidency.

But it’s no sure path to the gavel. Emmer, of Minnesota, won a simple majority of his colleagues behind closed doors, but he will need the support of most all Republicans during a House floor vote ahead.
