In a unanimous decision, Republicans have elected Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) as the new Speaker of the House. Johnson, a staunch conservative, emerged as the fourth nominee after weeks of political turmoil within the GOP. His election puts an end to the chaotic search for leadership and marks a significant shift in the party’s dynamics. Although not the initial front-runner, Johnson’s strong support from Donald Trump played a crucial role in his victory. With a House majority of 221-212, Johnson won with a vote of 220-209. His election is expected to have a profound impact on the House’s future direction.
