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.

Boehner to Stay On As Speaker?

Cristina Marcos, The Hill

With Eric Cantor no longer his heir apparent, John Boehner is now more likely to stay on as Speaker. Conservative Jeb Hensarling hasn't ruled out a bid for Speaker. But Other members doubt the conference will want to go through another round of tumultuous leadership elections.

Tea Party News Network Staff

Conservatives: Let’s Not Get Too Cocky

Dave Brat didn't beat Eric Cantor through osmosis; he won through hard work. The only way to replicate his victory is to buckle down and knock on doors, make phone calls, send email, post on social media and sell our conservative candidates in every forum we can find. 

For House Majority Whip We Back Stutzman Over Scalise and Roskam

The contest for House Majority Whip is not between Reps Steve Scalise, Peter Roskam and some hypothetical perfect conservative. It is between Scalise, Roskam and the only candidate in the race with a record of standing for conservative principles when the chips are down – Marlin Stutzman.

'TAKEOVER' Predicted Eric Cantor's Loss

ConservativeHQ's chairman Richard A. Viguerie's new conservative manifesto, "Takeover," foreshadowed the downfall of the Republican Party Establishment and how conservatives like Dave Brat would rise to reinstate the power of the grassroots.

Cantor Loss Gives Repubs. Chance to Become People's Party

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

R's should take a cue from the voters of Virginia’s 7th District and forget about the big banks. Cantor's defeat is the opportunity for the GOP to declare independence from Wall Street. Let the bankers flock to Hillary Clinton and Schumer.

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.

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."

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.

VIGUERIE: BOEHNER WILL STEP DOWN BEFORE '15

Greg Corombos, WND

“In Dave Brat, we had a first-class candidate. We have a first-class candidate running against an incumbent in Mississippi, Chris McDaniel. I think he’s going to win. The VA & MS elections send a message to high-quality conservatives out there, ‘Let me take a chance against the king; it’s been done before with success."

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.

Conservative Rep.: Majority Leader Election Rigged For Establishment

Alex Pappas, Daily Caller

Some conservative lawmakers, such as Steve King, are fuming that the short-time frame between Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s announced resignation yesterday and the election of his successor next week is unfairly “stacking the deck” for the two estab. R's vying to replace him.

DAVE BRAT AND THE RETURN OF THE CONSTITUTION

Jeffrey Lord, American Spectator

Eric Cantor lost to the modern Gipper, Dave Brat. Make no mistake. The Tea Party is not dead, and Reagan conservatism lives.

Palin: Amnesty Will Decimate Main Street

Tony Lee, Breitbart

Sarah Palin said amnesty, which led to Eric Cantor's downfall, resonates with Amer. workers because of the impact it'll have on their livelihoods. "Foreign citizens flooding into the US competing for jobs will flatline our economy and cause more unemployment for American workers."
