High-Ranking Republicans Unveil GENIUS Takeover Strategy

Conservative Leaders Call To Delay Leadership Elections

Conservative Leaders Call To Delay Leadership Elections

(TheRedWire.com) – The House and Senate GOP leadership is growing impatient to appoint leaders for the upcoming Congress, yet numerous election results remain undecided. Some are calling for restraint. On Monday, November 14, over 60 influential Conservatives called on Republicans in an open letter to both chambers to delay a leadership vote until after the Georgia runoff election on December 6.

The letter came as Republicans underperformed in the 2022 midterm elections. The Democrats retained their slim majority in the Senate and appear to be holding the GOP to a slight majority in the House. The conservative leaders argued Republicans not only needed to wait but also needed people who could skillfully and confidently articulate a compelling vision of who the GOP is, what they stand for, and what the party will do moving forward.

It’s customary for Republicans to hold intra-Party elections soon after voters have their say. On Friday, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) indicated the GOP wouldn’t wait, as congress members expected elections to pick the new leadership in Congress as early as Wednesday, November 16.

Among those who signed the open letter were former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, President of Club for Growth David McIntosh, Conservatives Partnership Institute Chairman Jim DeMint, Citizens United President David Bossie, and Ginni Thomas (wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas).
