Rep. Ralph Norman Says There Is Written Deal for Speakership
Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate said "National radio host Mark Levin discussed this possible written agreement on his national show for 30 minutes in outline form on Thursday night".
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC), one of 20 House Republicans who voted against Rep. Kevin McCarthy for Speaker expects a written offer between McCarthy and his opponents to be completed Thursday night, Punchbowl News reported.
Punchbowl News's Jake Sherman reported that a deal between McCarthy and his opponents "is close." Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Patrick McHenry (R-NC) have reportedly been leading negotiations with McCarthy.
"All the big players" met in Rep. Tom Emmer's (R-MN) office, and according to Sherman, Norman "expects an offer in writing tonight."
"Norman says there's an agreement in writing as he heads into Emmer's office," Punchbowl News's John Bresnahan reported. "He's been asked to look at it."
The breakthrough reports about a deal being on the table to secure McCarthy's speakership come amid a long day of negotiations, concessions, and multiple failed Speaker votes.
