(Missourinet) Count Missouri’s junior Republican U.S. Senator Josh Hawley among those glad to see Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s departure as U-S House Speaker:

“I’m glad that we’re going to have a new speaker here in just over a month and I presume that’ll be Kevin McCarthy…and I’m glad to see that. I’m glad to see Republicans back in the majority and I hope that we’ll be ready to govern.”

Pelosi announced Thursday that she would not seek a leadership position among House Democrats. Meanwhile, Hawley is disappointed that fellow Republican, Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell, was re-elected as that chamber’s Republican leader. Hawley had supported Florida Senator Rick Scott.
