Pelosi’s Replacement Prepares To Take Over

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has said in an interview that he is ready to lead as the Speaker in the lower chamber. McCarthy would potentially become the Speaker if Republicans manage to win the House in the upcoming midterm elections.

In a New York Magazine interview, McCarthy said that he is better prepared to be a speaker now than he had been in 2015. In 2015, the California Republican had dropped out of the running before the vote took place. This was a decision made after McCarthy had come under fire for alleging that the House Republicans’ investigation into the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was politically driven.

At the time he had connected the investigation to Hillary Clinton’s poll performance. Clinton had served as the secretary of State during the attack. In 2016 she became the Democratic nominee for president.
McCarthy has previously faced challenges when it comes to winning leadership races, as more conservative lawmakers tend to pull ahead.

This time McCarthy has focused on forming a close relationship with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a Freedom Caucus founder and former chairman. He also talked about this during the interview calling Jim Jordan his “biggest advocate.”

According to a FiveThirtyEight forecast, the Republicans are expected to win the House over the Democrats. The current estimates place the chance of Republicans winning at 81 percent.

McCarthy told Punchbowl News previously that he thought he would be able to win the Speakership regardless of the seat majority.

  1. I will vote for Kevin McCarthy. I really hope he gets Pelosi off of her precious speaker of the house seat. She has not been good for the country. It is certainly about time someone gets her out. I hope all republicans vote for Kevin McCarthy. I would like to see Pelosi out of politics forever.

  2. If and When the Republicans take over the house and hopefully the Senate, You had better be prepared to investigate and impeach every democrat that has failed to honor their oath of office “Protect and defend the constitution of the United States.” We have too many ( one is too many) Congressional and Senatorial Representatives that are doing all they can to take our God given rights. All of you failed to provide adequate support to Trump when he tried to turn this country back to a Republic his four years in office. If you fail again, We the People will have to form a new Party Called the Patriots. So make up your minds to do your job or get the heck out of the way!!!!

    • Mccarthey is a pathetic deep state establishment RINO and should never be speaker of the house. There are much better choices.

  3. If people vote for the Soros/Obama/Biden corruptions, then they deserve what they get (and don’t get because of empty shelves and no gas in cars, no jobs, over run by illegals, etc), then they deserve exactly what they get, however, those of us that voted for the good of our country has to suffer too. Don’t want to live in a place that the Democrats have made America into and have more enemies now thanava ever before, and also have made USA the laughing stock of the world, THANKS TO BIDEN GOVERNMENT.

  4. Kevin McCarthy is a RINO pure and simple. Jim Jordan would’ve the better speaker. I do not trust Kevin McCarthy after he stabbed Trump in the back. Just saying.

    • Am in full agreement with your insightful post, JR.

    • You took the words out of my mouth about McCarthy. Never trusted him either, regardless what comes out of his mouth. He is just like another Paul Ryan who didn’t do squat as Speaker with President Trump. I like Jim Jordon to but. Hope Jordon doesn’t fall for the crap out of McCarthys mouth. I wish John Kennedy wasn’t a Senator, ( he’s great), or I would vote for Kennedy as the Speaker. Hopefully the Repubs win both Houses in 2022.

      • You don’t have to be in Congress to be speaker! The majority could vote Trump to be the speaker! Then they could impeach Biden and Harris and Trump would be President! Look up the rules!

    • I wholeheartedly agree with you. McCarthy is too wishy washy. He cannot be depended upon to turn our country back into a Republic as outlined in our Constitution.

  5. I do not trust RINO Kevin McCarthy after he stabbed Trump in the back.

  6. Trust God and in Him only! Only God can help us now! I know I will get beat up over this post, but so be it. Jesus is the way, the truth, and life.

    • I agree with you Mike. I have realized that so many of our politicians can be bought. If it looks good to them and they get their projects put in the 2,500 page bills, that no one has time to read, they vote for it. I am over the garbage and I put my trust in no one but JESUS CHRIST. Go ahead and attack if you need to but God has provided everything I have needed and the Govt. has not helped at all.

  7. McCarthy is too weak to be speaker. We need real republicans that don’t follow Trump blindly!!! Trump wants to turn our Democracy into an Autocracy that he controls!!! Why can’t you idiot followers of Trump understand that he tried to create a Coup against our democracy!!! When trump becomes the next Hitler, you’ll all be sorry!!!! Wake up idiots!!!!!
