    KING of Iowa. Madam Clerk, I rise to place in a nomination for election to the constitutional office of Speaker of the United States House of Representatives a man who has served as speaker of the statehouse, a man who respects this institution, a man who understands that power and principle cannot coexist without recognizing the sanctity of each Member's vote in this House of Representatives, a man who will restore this institution of the House of Representatives. I place in nomination the name of Daniel Webster, a Representative-elect from the great State of Florida.



    The CLERK. Are there further nominations? The names of the Honorable John A. Boehner, a Representative-elect from the State of Ohio; the Honorable Nancy Pelosi, a Representative- elect from the State of California; the Honorable Ted Yoho, a Representative-elect from the State of Florida; the Honorable Louie Gohmert, a Representative-elect from the State of Texas; and the Honorable Daniel Webster, a Representative-elect from the State of Florida, have been placed in nomination.

    Are there further nominations? There being no further nominations, the Clerk appoints the following tellers: The gentlewoman from Michigan (Mrs. Miller); The gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Brady); The gentlewoman from Ohio (Ms. Kaptur); and The gentlewoman from Florida (Ms. Ros-Lehtinen).

    The tellers will come forward and take their seats at the desk in front of the Speaker's rostrum.

    The roll will now be called, and those responding to their names will indicate by surname the nominee of their choosing.
