Blunt Statement on House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer

November 22, 2022

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement in response to today’s Washington Post editorial on House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s (Md.) decision not to seek re-election to House leadership in the next Congress:  

“An editorial in today’s Washington Post referred to House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer as a ‘beloved, admired giant on Capitol Hill.’ I couldn’t agree more. During the almost 10 years we served together as the Republican and Democratic Whips in the House, we often didn’t vote the same way, but when something had to get done we almost always did vote the same way. Steny has always understood that doing the best you can is a good thing. Democracy is best defined by advocating for what you believe and finding the place where compromise moves the country forward. No one understands that better than Congressman Steny Hoyer.”
