Presumed to be the next Speaker of the House, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) isn’t ready to endorse any of his Republican colleagues for the 2024 —even former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump.
From The New York Post:
McCarthy’s refusal came one day after the 76-year-old former commander in chief announced his 2024 bid.
“You guys are crazy,” McCarthy told reporters when asked if he had plans to back Trump.
“I thought he gave a great speech,” McCarthy said about Trump’s Tuesday night Mar-a-Lago spectacle.
The California Republican fended off a challenge by Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) to win the House GOP’s nomination to be speaker of the House just hours before Trump’s announcement.
Both McCarthy and Trump have come under fire by many in the GOP after the party’s worse than expected performance in the midterm elections. Republicans failed to gain control of the Senate and only clinched control of the House on Wednesday, and, so far, hold the majority by only one seat.
