"I was proud to support conservative leader Jim Jordan for Speaker of the House. America spoke last November — Republicans are in the majority in the House and we should elect a Republican Speaker with Republican votes," Rogers said in a statement provided to 1819 News on Friday. "I am and have always been strongly opposed to any attempt to form a coalition government with Democratic support."
