Rep. Kevin McCarthy

FLASH: House Leadership Elections Update

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers has taken herself out of the race for House Majority Leader. Although it is too early in the process to make endorsements, the House Republican leadership elections are starting to breakdown along principled conservative vs. Boehner team lines. We urge you to call your Representative and tell him or her you want a thorough house cleaning in the House Republican leadership and an end to the Big Government, Big Spending cronyism that characterized the Boehner years.

Congressional Republicans Have Electoral Learning Disability

The election of Establishment Republicans Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Steve Scalise to House Majority Leader and House Majority Whip GOP leadership positions has outraged conservatives.

Labrador To Run For Majority Leader

Matt Fuller, Roll Call

Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) is now a candidate for majority leader. “I was stunned when Eric Cantor lost. I have tremendous respect for him. But the message is clear; Americans are looking for a change in the status quo. I want a House Leadership team that reflects the best of our conference."

House Repub. Leadership: Where are the Conservatives?

Rick Manning, The Hill

No conservative candidate has announced for the majority leader spot, & the alternative for whip, Steve Scalise, is just a Boehner cheerleader. After all the concerns about the direction that Boehner's team is taking the House, no one is rising up to the challenge now that the opportunity is present.

How Conservatives Missed The Chance to Replace Cantor With A Conservative

Jonathan Strong, Breitbart

“Shame on all of us. Here's the conservative movement, and we were all asleep at the switch. We didn't galvanize behind a person; we waited until the die was cast. If conservatives are going to actually win some battles, then we damn well better get on our game,” a conservative lawmaker said.

Whip List on GOP Leadership Races

Sessions's TARP Vote May Haunt Him

McCarthy Is Worse Than Cantor

Erick Erickson, Red State

The House GOP is ignoring the Cantor defeat as a meaningless anomaly. Kevin McCarthy's will likely be Majority Leader. He's an anti-TEA Party squishy who's pro-amnesty, and not a friend of conservatives. Amnesty is coming.

GOP Leaders Are Lying About Not Planning To Pass Amnesty

Please  allow us to connect the dots and make the case that Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor and GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy are just plain lying when they or their spokesmen say there’s no plan to move an amnesty bill in the House this year.

The Capitol Hill GOP Leaders Are Frauds

For decades CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie has been hammering away on the Republican establishment on Capitol Hill for trying to dupe limited government constitutional conservative voters. Now a new generation of conservatives is joining Viguerie in calling out the Republican congressional “leaders” as frauds. Sign and share the "Fire Boehner" petition.

Bozell Takes Aim at GOP Leadership

Andrew Stiles, National Review Online

Conservative activist Brent Bozell says it’s time for GOP leaders in Congress to step aside. His organization, ForAmerica, announced “an aggressive, 6-figure social media and digital ad campaign” against top R's in Congress between now and the midterm elections. 

Don’t Believe the Establishment GOP on Amnesty

Ted Cruz has it exactly right. Granting “legal status” to those who came here illegally is amnesty. When you legislatively absolve millions of law breakers of their crimes, that’s amnesty and that’s the pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens and the pathway to irrelevance for the Republican Party. Demand that your Member of Congress sign the No Amnesty Pledge. 

We The People Verses Big Business on Amnesty

Let's be clear what Big Business wants: One new immigrant to compete for a job with every American teenager and young adult entering the workforce over the next decade. One new immigrant to compete for a job with your children and grandchildren in an economy that already has seen record unemployment among its young citizens. Sign and share the "NO AMNESTY" petition now.

Asking the GOP Establishment the Obvious Question About ObamaCare

Why is the Republican establishment happy to give Obama time to fix ObamaCare, but opposed to actually doing the one thing that would stop ObamaCare before it becomes another welfare addiction – defunding it.

Fire Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy

Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy didn’t even make the argument that House Republicans were fulfilling their constitutional role in defunding ObamaCare and cutting spending as part of a debt ceiling deal – they simply accepted that opposing Obama was out of the question and their job was to fund the destruction of American exceptionalism.

If personnel is policy, then the House leadership just became more conservative with one hire.
