Following repeated attempts to elect a Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) released the below statement:

“Without a Speaker, my colleagues and I cannot do the job we were sent to Washington to do. This bitter battle within the Republican Conference has brought all of Congress to a standstill. It’s time for Republicans to end the chaos and confusion. House Democrats remain united behind Leader Hakeem Jeffries and stand ready to deliver results for the American people. I continue to urge my Republican colleagues to stop playing political games so that we can get to work.”
