Congressman Louie Gohmert Nominates Newt Gingrich For House Speaker
The Texas congressman says, “You don’t have to be a member of the body to be speaker.”
His motion was not seconded by any other members, and House Speaker John Boehner was reelected by a voice vote, followed by a standing ovation.
As he delivered his acceptance speech, Boehner responded to his colleague’s unexpected nomination.
“Louie, I love you too,” Boehner said.
