历时4天、15轮投票,美国众议院议长选举在当地时间7日凌晨落下帷幕。共和党议长候选人凯文·麦肯锡获得超过216票的选票,达到当次投票半数以上,当选美国第118届国会众议长。

卡锡称在当选议长之后的演讲中说道:"我希望本周之后,有一件事是清楚的,我永远不会放弃,我永远不会放弃为美国人民而奋斗,我也永远不会放弃履行我们对美国的承诺"。

一场“闹剧”终于收场,美国总统拜登和前总统特朗普第一时间发声,对当选议长的共和党领袖麦卡锡表示祝贺。

麦肯锡被认为是美国前总统特朗普的亲密盟友。2006年,他首次当选美国国会议员,2011年担任众议院多数党党鞭,2015年首次冲击众议长一职失败。2022年11月,他赢得共和党众议院议长提名。

此次议长选举成了美国众议院164年以来最长的一次。按照程序,众议院选出议长后,430多名众议员才能宣誓就职、组成各委员会,履行立法、监督职能。

That was easy, huh? I never thought we'd get up here.

Thank you, minority leader Jeffries.

Hakeem, I've got to warn you, two years ago I got 100% of the vote from my conference.

There's somebody else I want to thank, the gentle lady who served as our presiding officer this week, our clerk Sheryl Johnson.

Thank you.

You know, my father always told me it's not how you start, it's how you finish, and now we need to finish strong for the American people.

You know the son of a fireman and a grandchild of immigrants can rise to the highest position to the most important legislative body in our country.

And if my colleague, hakeem Jeffries, with his life story can rise to lead his party, then opportunity in democracy still thrive in America.

To leader Jeffries, there will be times we agree, many times we will differ.

I promise our debates will be passionate, but they will never be personal.

That's my commitment to you.

And now the hard work begins.

What we do here today next week, next month, next year will set the tone for everything that follows.

Tonight I want to talk directly to the American people.

As speaker of the house my ultimate responsibility is not to my party, my conference, or even our congress.

My responsibility, our responsibility is to our country.

Two months ago you voted for a new direction for our country.

You embraced our commitment to America, and now we're going to keep our commitment to you.

It's a commitment to for an economy that's strong, where you can fill up your tank of gas and feed your family, where paychecks grow and not shrink.

It's a commitment for a nation that's safe, where communities are protected, law enforcement is respected, and criminals ar E prosecuted.

A commitment for the future that's built on freedom where children come first and are taught to dream big because in America dreams can still come true.

A commitment for a government that is held accountable, where Americans get the answers they want, need, and deserve.

Our system is built on checks and balances.

It's time for us to be a check and provide some balance for the president's policies.

There's nothing more important than making it possible for American families to live and enjoy the lives they deserve.

That is why we commit to stop wasteful Washington spending, to lower the price of groceries, gas, cars, housing, and stop the rising national debt.

We pledge to cut the regulatory burden, lower energy costs for families, and create good paying jobs for workers by unleashing reliable, abundant american-made energy.

I know the night is late, but when we come back our very first bill will repeal the funding for 87,000 -- You see, we believe government should be to help you, not go after you.

We're going to pass bills to fix the nation's errant challenges, from wide open southern borders, to America's energy policies to woke indoctrination in our schools.

We'll also address America's long-term challenges, the debt and the rise of the Chinese.

Congress must speak with one voice on both of these issues.

This is why we'll end wasteful Washington spending.

From now on if a federal bureaucrat wants to spend it, they will come before us to defend it.

As for the Chinese, we will create a bipartisan select committee on China to investigate how to bring back the hundreds of thousands of jobs that went to China, and then we will win this economic competition.

Now, speaking of committees, we will hold the swamp accountable, from the withdrawal of Afghanistan to the origins of covid and to the weaponization of the FBI.

Let me be very clear, we will use the power of the purse and the power of the subpoena to get the job done.

This is something we should all agree upon.

We will stand up and speak out for the backbone of our economy, the hardworking taxpayer.

It's nighttime here in Washington, but in some ways it's also like a new beginning, a fresh start.

My friends, this chamber is now fully open for all Americans I want to give all Americans a personal invitation.

You are welcome to see this body at work.

No longer will the doors be closed, but the debates will be open for you to witness what happens in the peoples house.

From the committee rooms to this floor, we commit to pursue the truth passionately and embrace debate.

No more one-sided inquiries.

Competing ideas will be put to the test enpublic so that the best ideas win.

But we also pledge to bring congress to the people because answers have not and will not always be found in Washington.

That's why one of our very first hearings will be held on the southern border.

No more ignoring a crisis for safety and sovereignty.

We must secure our border.

We must get America back on track.

On a personal note to my family here and at home, to Judy, Megan, Connor, Emily, my brother mark, Emily, Zack, and, yes, my mom Bert, I am where I am because you are who you are.

You can stand.

I'd also like to thank my constituents from California central valley and especially my hometown of bakersville.

I don't know if you're familiar with music but as -- sings how many of you that sit and judge me have ever walked the streets of Bakersfield.

Well, I've walked those streets my entire life.

I know it's people.

They're hardworking and relentless, optimistic about our future.

And I'm very honored to have the opportunity to represent them.

I am the son of a firefighter.

I saw first-hand what it means to have hardwork, leadership and service to others.

It can change peoples lives, and that is exactly why we are here today, to serve you, the people.

We come here with the support of our families and the faith of our neighbors to be their voice in Washington, for all the wives and husbands, children and parents who are watching of loved ones to be sworn in, I knew it took an extra couple days.

I'll be honest, it's not how I had it planned.

I want you to remember this moment, take it in.

Your loved ones are about to make history.

My colleagues and I thank you for your understanding and your sacrifice, and we will work every day to make you proud.

My most favorite spot in this building is not in this chamber, it's in the chamber we met before, in statuary hall.

It's my favorite place to take people on a tour.

You see, it's where Abraham Lincoln served.

Just a one-term congressman, sat in the back.

I like to go to that spot and I like to stand where he stood.

I like to do it at night when people aren't around.

I like to look over and look at the clock because that's the same clock and same view that Abraham Lincoln saw.

I've watched Lincoln serve in the greatest challenge to our constitution, the civil war.

I watched him take people who were rivals and put them together.

I watched at a time he did not know it that a nation could sustain itself, but he dreamt of a future and built a railroad across the nation.

I want us to all take a moment one time that you were here.

I want you to stand there.

I want you to look, and I want you to think if America could do it then, we can do it now one more time.

Abraham Lincoln gave his life in service to this country.

One of his most important observations about America applies today as much as it did 160 years ago.

He said we are striving to maintain the government and institutions of our fathers and to transmit them to our children and our children's children forever.

My fellow Americans, that is still our mission today.

This moment calls for restoring trust within our country and with each other.

In that spirit I will work with anyone and everyone who shares our passion to deliver a better future for the nation.

I hope you'll join me.

As a congress we can only operate if we cooperate.

My door will be open.

I'd like you to come by.

I want you to see as you walk down the hall a large portrait of Lincoln.

I want you to go into that conference room, and I want you to see another portrait.

My members know of this.

It's of Washington crossing the Delaware.

You all know the story.

It happened on Christmas 1776.

There was no iPhone to take a picture.

People wonder when it was painted.

It wasn't painted by someone who was there.

It was painted in 1850 and 1851.

He was an immigrant who lived in America.

You know why he painted it? Because he knew America was more than a country.

America was an idea.

He went home to Germany, and he wanted Germany to have a revolution based upon the values and freedoms that we defend every day.

His talent was art, so he believed if he painted this painting he could inspire his countrymen to rise up for the idea of freedom.

Many historians will tell you he didn't get it correct.

They'll tell you Washington crossed on a Durham boat, but he paints it with Washington in a row boat.

You see 13 people but only 12 faces.

You see Washington standing up in a row boat in the middle of winter wearing a ceremonial uniform with his hand on his chest, he looks so stoic.

You would look at that man and you'd say I'd follow him anywhere.

You probably believe that he never lost the battle.

But history would tell us at that moment, at that time he'd only lost.

We had never won.

You see, that was the night of our first victory as a nation when we surprised the hessians.

But when you look at that painting don't look at Washington.

I want you to look at who's in the boat.

You see, the second row in the bu ray he's Scottish.

The second person across him in the green rowing the exact same cadence is an African American.

You come down right to the middle, in the red, the person who's rowing the strongest is a woman.

And in the very back is a native-american.

I don't know from a historic fact if they were in the boat that night, but to this young immigrant who had lived in America, that's who he believed would be in the boat.

The second to last person is a farmer.

He could be from Bakersfield.

I'm not sure.

His hand goes across his face.

People will debate this part, but what I see is a hand of the 13th person nobody sees.

You see what I believe Emmanuel is saying is here we are battling for the creation of the idea of freedom, that every individual is equal, not a perfect nation but striving to be a more perfect union, having lost every battle against the greatest challenge with the strongest nation, having lost them all but willing to do it on our holiest of nights with a hand reached out and asking if you would join us.

That's as true today as it was then.

If we let everybody in the boat, if we row in the same cadence together, there is no obstacle this body can overcome for this nation.

It is time for us to be the voice and worthy of their vote.

Let me close with this.

I may not know all of you.

Some of you are new, but I hope one thing is clear after this week.

I never give up.

I make this promise.

I'll never give up for you, the American people.

And I will never give up on keeping our commitment to America.

Our nation is worth fighting for.

Our rights are worth fighting for.

Our dreams are worth fighting for.

Our future is worth fighting for.

Therefore, with love for this country and charity for each other, let us now take our oath and be worthy of the office.
