Two Lawmakers Nearly Came to Blows

Politico: “Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) lunged at Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL.) and had to be pulled away by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC). It happened after Gaetz blocked Kevin McCarthy from clinching the final vote to be elected speaker in the fourteenth round of voting — and after the rabble rouser signaled he was ready to back down and let everyone finally go home.”

Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN), who was in between Gaetz and Rogers during their confrontation on the House floor, told CNN Rogers was making threats about ending careers.

Said Burchett: “People shouldn’t be drinking, especially when you’re a redneck, on the House floor.”

He added: “I would drop him like a bag of dirt. Nobody’s gonna put their hands on me. Nobody’s gonna threaten me.”
