CARL HIGBIE (HOST): What do you think about the next speaker? I mean, obviously could be Kevin McCarthy again. But do you think that it's a more moderate Republican that could pull some Democrat votes to get 218? Or do you see it being "America First" person, with all the Republicans getting behind him?

ASHLEY HAYEK (GUEST): So far there have been a few names but remember, it doesn't necessarily have to be a member of Congress, either.

HIGBIE: That is true. It could be me. 

HAYEK: It'll be very interesting to see who it could be moving forward, But we've got a limited amount of time and we've got to move forward as quickly as possible because there's business to do and people to serve.

HIGBIE: Yeah, no. I think that's an interesting point. I'm glad you brought that up that it doesn't have to be a member of the House. It could be someone else, maybe rhymes with Trump. Who knows?
