New NRSC Chairman Roger Wicker Promises No Shutdowns, No Impeachment


Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi was elected Thursday as the new chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. On Friday, he appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

JOE SCARBOROUGH, MORNING JOE: Do you agree with Mitch McConnell that there's no way in heck that the Republican Party is going to shut down the government?

SEN. ROGER WICKER (R-Mississippi): You know they asked Mitch two ways about that, and the answer was the same, we're not going to have any government shutdowns, we're not going to have any threats of impeachment. We're going return to regular order and show America how the Senate is supposed to work, how the founding fathers intended us to move legislation through, an open process, unlimited debate, working in to the night, working on Mondays and Fridays for a change, like the American people do, and sending legislation to the House and on to the president for, hopefully his signature.
