Jefferies is currently in the position of Speaker of the House.

The newly elected representative has expressed her desire that Republicans “move on” from the process of selecting the next Speaker of the House so that “we can all be sworn in and start truly doing the work of our people.”

Salinas has stated that after she is inducted into office, she intends to work across the aisle, and she has also stated that constituents likely prefer collaboration in Congress. Salinas stated, “I do think that this most recent election was a referendum on behavior and voters do want us to work together, they’re weary of divisiveness.” “I do think that this most recent election was a referendum on behavior.”
