If you are holding out hope that there now being nine Republican candidates for speaker of the United States House of Representatives means a candidate who does not want to commit the US government to supporting Israel in its new war may win, think again.
Even with this many candidates, a review of their Twitter pages uncovers that every one of them has been proclaiming since the October 7 Hamas attack their devotion to the Israel government and their support for that government in its new war. If any of these candidates wins, support for committing the US government to aiding the Israel government in its pursuit of the new war wins as well.
Despite polling indicating that the majority of Americans oppose the US government providing the Israel government with weapons and supplies for the new war, every Republican seeking the speakership seems sure to support just that. The same goes for the three previous candidates this month in the Republicans’ continuing effort to elect a new speaker — Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Steve Scalise (R-LA), and Austin Scott (R-GA). (Scott alone among these three is again a candidate.)

So sad, there has not been even one Republican speaker candidate supporting nonintervention. War is the sole choice in this election.
