State Department Expresses National Security Concerns Over Delays in Choosing New House Speaker

By Frank Fang


State Department spokesman Ned Price has said the continued absence of a House speaker could have national security implications.

“Well, of course over time those concerns—concerns on the part of the members themselves, or the members-elect themselves—will be compounded,” Price said during a press briefing on Jan. 5.

“The first few days of any congressional term usually is spent on procedural elements like this, but of course, if this continues on, there will be additional concerns,” he added. “I’m sure we will hear additional concerns from the Hill as well.”
