Could Kevin McCarthy Be A Great Majority Leader?

By Richard A. Viguerie, Author & CHQ Chairman

The number one thing conservatives have lacked in my 53 years of being involved in the conservative movement at the national level is strong, articulate, effective leadership. Kevin McCarthy has the right instincts and the right tools, if he would turn them toward the right target, and stand and fight for the conservative principles that brought him into the Republican Party he could be a great House Majority Leader.

GOP Estab's McCarthy, Scalise to Lead House

Paul Kane & Ed O'Keefe, Washington Post

“The bad news is that the two winning candidates, McCarthy and Scalise, are business-as-usual, go-along-to-get-along Washington insiders,” said Richard Viguerie, a longtime conservative activist. “The gap between the leadership of the Republican Party and the base of the party continues to widen.”

Conservatives dissatisfied with their new leadership team are biding their time for what could become a bitter battle for control of the conference after the midterm elections. Conservatives had hoped to install one of their own as majority leader, since the position controls what legislation reaches the floor.

Silicon Valley is counting on Kevin McCarthy to win the House GOP Majority Leader race today. He has reinforced a need for high-skilled foreign workers, promoted free trade and helped push through a patent bill last year that the Big Tech Billionaires desired.

Labrador: House Leadership Shouldn't 'Ascend to the Throne'

Mario Trujillo, The Hill

Conservative Rep. Raul Labrador said it isn't appropriate for House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy simply to "ascend to the throne" because he is next in line. He's mounting an underdog bid for majority leader, claiming he could bring the party together in a way McCarthy can’t. 

End the GOP Establishment’s Arrogance of Power: Support Raul Labrador for House Majority Leader

We are backing Raul Labrador not just because we want a more conservative House Republican leadership, but because we also want an end to the arrogance of power that led to Eric Cantor’s defeat.

Republican Leaders Are Boneless Wonders

In the House GOP leadership reorganization that will occur in the wake of Eric Cantor’s defeat conservatives don’t have to gain all the leadership positions to advance our agenda. What we need is at least one leader who will wake-up every morning thinking, “What are the four, five, six things I can do today to put the Democrats out of business?”

Kevin McCarthy is Much Worse Than Eric Cantor

Kevin McCarthy epitomizes all that’s wrong with Washington. McCarthy only votes with conservatives 42 percent of the time compared to 53 percent for Cantor. That's pathetic, dangerous, and the best possible reason to replace the entire House GOP leadership now.

Forget McCarthy or Pete Sessions As Majority Leader

A brief review of their records shows, Kevin McCarthy and Pete Sessions long ago disqualified themselves for the leadership of a House Republican Conference that was elected on a platform of governing America according to conservative principles. House Republicans should avoid elevating someone who is as bad as or worse than Eric Cantor is on the conservative agenda to replace him in the number two spot in the House Republican leadership.

Is It True, Mr. Speaker?

We said back in November of last year Speaker Boehner, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy, Cathy McMorris Rogers and the rest of the House Republican “leadership” could not be trusted on immigration and Valerie Jarrett’s remarks to the global elite gathered at the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas show we were right.

House Conservatives Finally Focusing On True Opponent

In my new book TAKEOVER I make the case that conservatives been fighting the Democrats, when the greatest impediments to the conservative governance of America are not Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid; they are John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Reince Priebus. Now it looks like 40 to 50 members of the House Republican Conference agree with me.

Run -- don’t walk – to the phone NOW and call your Representative to demand that he or she pledge to oppose any proposal that gives illegal aliens a free pass (amnesty) and doesn’t secure our borders.

Republican Suicide Equals National Suicide

The Republican Party is dead unless Republicans honor their clear duty to defend the core interests of the American workers who form the backbone of this nation.
