If the conservatives had a candidate who could get 53 votes for Speaker, they would have
already moved on Schexnayder. They’ve said they would have his back if he would just commit to being worthy of it. Rolling the Black Caucus over would have solidified support and made any talk of a new Speaker irrelevant. But that’s what you’d have seen from a Clay Schexnayder who did not suck. No such Clay Schexnayder exists.
