Rep. Walter Jones told Newsmax TV Friday that he resented outgoing House Speaker John Boehner for postponing the nomination vote for his successor Thursday after Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy abruptly withdrew from the race.

"We should've gone ahead and had the election," the North Carolina Republican told "Newsmax Prime" hosts J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan. "This is John Boehner trying to pick his replacement."

"Many of us who are basically the conservatives of the House, we resent that," Jones added. "We had two good candidates that we could've chosen yesterday, one of the two."

"That's my opinion, but also the opinion of some other people, too."
