The scheduled vote for GOP leadership within the Senate is set to move forward, despite a push for postponement.

The Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed

First we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities & values of the working Americans (of every background) who gave us big wins in states like #Florida

It makes no sense for Senate to have leadership elections before GA runoff.

We don’t yet know whether we’ll have a majority & Herschel Walker deserves a say in our leadership.

Critically, we need to hear a specific plan for the next 2 yrs from any candidate for leadership.

Think about it – if we hold leadership elections on Wednesday, there’d be more campaigning done in a high-school class president election than in the most deliberative body in the world.

It is absurd.

These elections need to be delayed.

According to reports on Sunday, Republican Senators wanted to consider the completion of the Georgia runoff, as well as growing party frustrations with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) first.

Senators Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), and Mike Lee (R-Utah) have all called for a delay in the leadership elections.

Regardless, the vote will still be proceed as planned on Wednesday morning.
