Rep. Justin Amash, who left the GOP and joined the Libertarian Party this year before deciding not to seek reelection, has an offer on the table for the entire House:
If neither party has the votes to elect a speaker of the House, I’d be happy to serve as a nonpartisan speaker who ensures the institution works as it’s supposed to—a place where all ideas are welcome and where outcomes are discovered through the process, not dictated from above.

What a generous offer!
I guess I’ll throw my hat in the ring too https://t.co/mESidCBNlw

Why would they choose you to be a nonpartisan speaker when you’re known for being extremely outspoken and unyielding about your own political agenda? You’re not nonpartisan, just unpopular. https://t.co/atBUUGWHyo

He didn’t choose not to seek reelection for a reason.
Who do you think would agree to that, besides your mom?
