Log Cabin Republicans President Charles Moran released the following statement:

Log Cabin Republicans congratulates Rep. Michael Johnson on his election to become the 56th Speaker of the House of Representatives. As Speaker and the leader of the GOP in the House, it will be imperative that he work to implement an agenda that advances the interests of all Americans. Speaker Johnson previously united all sides of the conservative movement in the House Republican Conference. This same effort is needed to promote rational, common-sense proposals to maintain and expand the Republican House majority and will be required for the remainder of the term ahead and for his success, that of the GOP and indeed the nation.
