Pastor Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, said in a statement given to CP that he believes Johnson has great potential as House speaker.
“He reminds me of David in the book of 1 Samuel. He wasn’t the first choice or the second or the third, but when he emerged he took down a giant,” Rodriguez said.
“Speaker Johnson has an opportunity to bring together the different factions of the Republican party. He has the intellectual bandwidth, the character, the integrity, and the reputation to build a viable and sustainable coalition that will advance, a pro-faith, family, and free enterprise agenda.”
