Byron Donalds-Tonight, I’m announcing my candidacy for Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Cory Mills -The American people need a Speaker who can unify our country, especially during time of great turmoil.

@RepDonaldsPress is a strong legislator who hasn’t spent decades in the Swamp making back door deals. I believe he is the best candidate to bring our Republican Conference together & get the job done for the American people.

Rep. Mike Waltz-Our country desperately needs leadership to hold Biden accountable and move our country forward.

Pleased to support fellow Floridian and conservative @ByronDonalds for Speaker of the House.

Let’s get back to work!

Rep. Carlos A. Gimenez-NEW: As a fellow Floridian and as an America First Republican, I am proud to endorse my friend and colleague Byron Donalds for Speaker of the House.

Byron is the present & future of our movement — he’s the conservative leader we need to unite us as Republicans.

Rep. Byron Donalds
