(FOX NEWS) – House Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., has dropped out of the race for House speaker.
He announced the decision following a closed-door meeting with fellow House Republicans Thursday evening.
In a press conference following his decision to step aside, Scalise called for the Republican Party to come together for the country over its members’ own political agendas.
“If you look at over the last few weeks, if you look at where our conferences there’s still work to be done. Our conference still has to come together and is not there. There are still some people that have their own agendas. And I was very clear we have to have everybody put their agendas on the side and focus on what this country needs. This country is counting on us to come back together,” he said.
