WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, following Kevin McCarthy’s historic ouster from the Office of the Speaker, Congressman Carlos A. Gimenez (FL-28) is calling for reforms to House Rules on the Motion to Vacate. Rep. Gimenez recently emphasized his position on CNN.
“The person who wants my vote for Speaker must commit to reforming the Motion to Vacate,” said Rep. Carlos Gimenez. “The threshold must be raised to 50% of the Republican Conference. The coup against Speaker Kevin McCarthy was despicable and must never happen again. A Speaker cannot govern under constant threat by fringe hostage takers.”
Congressman Carlos Giménez (FL-28) represents beautiful Miami-Dade County and the Florida Keys. Rep. Gimenez is the only Cuban-born Member of the 118th Congress, having fled his homeland shortly after the Communist takeover of the island. He serves on the House Armed Services Committee, the Homeland Security Committee, and the Select Committee on China.
