Mike Gallagher and WI GOP Deliver Ringing Endorsement of Chaos and Gridlock

MADISON, Wis.Led by Mike Gallagher, Wisconsin’s GOP delegation in the House delivered a ringing endorsement of Congressional gridlock yesterday, continuing to back Kevin McCarthy’s seemingly doomed bid for Speaker. Despite the best efforts of Bryan Steil, Derrick Van Orden, Scott Fitzgerald, Glenn Grothman, Tom Tiffany and Gallagher, McCarthy bled support from his caucus with each round of voting.

Adding insult to injury, Gallagher also admitted that the GOP failure to govern is now preventing him from receiving classified security briefings. While Democrats remain focused on fighting for the issues that matter to working families, like lowering costs and creating jobs, Republicans are fighting each other.

“Mike Gallagher started his day yesterday delivering a ringing endorsement of GOP chaos and gridlock in Congress and ended it with an admission that the ongoing Republican disarray is preventing him from doing his job,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Haley McCoy. “As we approach the anniversary of the horrific January 6th riots, this display shows clearly the GOP remains as extreme and chaotic as ever. However many ballots it takes to elect a Speaker, it’ll be the extreme MAGA Republicans who are truly in charge of the House Republican caucus — and Wisconsin’s Republican representatives in Congress appear unable or unwilling to do anything about it.”
