With a new month comes a new Republican lawmaker set to take over the speaker's gavel in 2024.

Over the weekend, the majority of the 27-member House Republican class of 2018 attended a meeting in Tampa to decide who would take over the reins as House Speaker in 2024. As expected, every member of the freshmen class rallied around Rep. Daniel Perez, putting aside any preferential differences to unify the caucus in the name of conservatism.

The meeting and subsequent pledge on behalf of the entire class officially marks an end to the behind-the-scenes race that saw Perez take on Rep. Will Robinson for the top spot in the House.
