McCarthy Gave $8 million to 32 Incumbents in Hopes of Growing GOP House Majority in 2024
“McCarthy, R-Calif., gave $4 million to incumbents via his Protect the House 2024 joint fundraising committee while $4.7 million came from member-to-member donations.”
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy is determined to hold and grow the Republican majority in 2024. The party only has a four-seat majority.
McCarthy handed out over $8 million to 32 incumbent GOP House members during an event last Thursday for his joint fundraising committee at the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C.
McCarthy, R-Calif., gave $4 million to incumbents via his Protect the House 2024 joint fundraising committee while $4.7 million came from member-to-member donations.
McCarthy told Fox News Digital that the party wants to protect seats “from New York to California, Oregon to Arizona.”
Freshman Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (R-OR) said these moves would motivate the freshman:
Freshman Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer, R-Ore., said the support from McCarthy and other candidates “motivates us as brand new freshmen congressmen and women to go back to our districts and continue to fight the good fight that we’ve done for the last really two years.”
“Let me tell you what this does for Oregon: I am the first Republican woman ever elected to Oregon,” Chavez-DeRemer said. “It brings a balanced voice, it lets my constituents know that I’m fighting for them.”
“It lets them know that we have a powerhouse of the GOP willing to stand up for us and fight for us across the country,” she added.
Freshman Rep. Juan Ciscomani (R-AZ) applauded his freshman class and McCarthy for reaching out:
“I think leadership was on to something here from the very beginning, on building this kind of relationship between members,” Ciscomani said. “Freshmen for sure, but every time we would come, the senior members would also be very welcoming and very encouraging to us, and they’ve been like that in the first three months in office.”
“They’ve been supportive, helpful with all the questions that we may have, I mean, just over and over again showing up for us,” Ciscomani continued. “And today is another great example of that as they keep coming and saying, ‘Hey, we’re all a family, we’re going to stick together.’”

Incumbents by definition aren’t adding to the majority
They are if they’re at risk of being defeated. There’s no point in electing new members if you don’t protect the old ones.
If he manages to get more Republicans, they’ll likely be clones of himself and he won’t be held hostage to the Freedom Caucus again. His spine will dissolve back into his adipose tissue, never to be seen again.
The indiictment of Trump spelled the end of the American experiment. We have to get away from these suicidal fascits, or else…
Designated Feckless-R “leadership” acting like they are a political party, want to win, hold some kind of power, are in the game with the rest of their party…
