Gaetz Nomination For 2022 Speaker Is Genius… He’s The First One!

Republican congressman from Florida, Matt Gaetz, has promised to nominate Donald Trump as the next House Speaker, should Republicans regain the majority. A few people have floated this possibility over the last year. But Gaetz is the first elected official to make it a pledge.

While this might be a surprise to some, the law doesn’t specify who can or can’t be Speaker of the House. All the Constitution requires is that congressmen nominate and vote on who it will be. That means the possibility that someone outside the House is made Speaker.
