NOTE FROM TODD: Facebook is once again cracking down on conservative journalists. Click here to get Todd’s free newsletter for the latest Conservative and Christian news.
Tom Emmer is the hand-picked choice of ex-Speaker Kevin McCarthy. He’s a moderate Republican from Minnesota.
Mr. Emmer supports aid for Ukraine and he voted alongside Democrats in September for a short-term budget to avert a government shutdown. He also voted to certify the 2020 presidential election and issued a sharp rebuke of the J-6 Capitol riots.
Emmer is also pro-gay marriage.
He is the only candidate for Speaker to vote in favor of legislation that would federally codify same-sex marriage.
Rep. Rick Allen (R-GA) told The Recount he’s “very concerned” about House Speaker candidate Rep. Tom Emmer’s (R-MN) vote for the Respect for Marriage Act, which federally recognized states’ same-sex and interracial marriages.
Allen, when asked if he would vote for Emmer, replied, “No.”
That McCarthy would throw his support behind Emmer tells you everything you need to know about why he is now the former House Speaker.
Tom Emmer may be a good man, but he is not a conservative man. Same as the last guy. And if he’s elected Speaker, Emmer will not be speaking for gun-toting, Bible-clinging Conservatives.
Call your elected representatives right now and let them know where you stand. The switchboard number is (202) 224-3121.
