About our Mike Johnson news

Latest news on Mike Johnson, a Republican Representative from Louisiana, who was elected as the Speaker of the US House of Representatives on 25 October 2023, following a successful motion to vacate the speakership of Kevin McCarthy of California on 3 October 2023. His election marked the end of a three-week vacancy and three failed candidates for the position, and he won unanimous support from his fellow Republicans. Before this role, Johnson represented Louisiana's fourth congressional district after being elected to Congress in 2016. He also served in the Louisiana statehouse beginning in 2015.

Mike Johnson is known for his conservative stance on various issues. Before entering politics, he worked as a lawyer primarily on religious freedom issues and successfully defended Louisiana's same-sex marriage ban in 2004. He is a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump and is particularly known for defending Trump's attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. Johnson opposes same-sex marriage and abortion rights. He also introduced a bill in 2022 to prevent schools from promoting or discussing gender identity. Johnson is against sending aid to Ukraine to defend itself against Russia, which earned him an F from the advocacy group Republicans for Ukraine.
