“I believe Donald Trump will win, I believe that Republicans will gain more seats in the House, and that Republicans will win the Senate”
In an interview with CBS News, former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy endorsed Donald Trump for president in 2024 and said that he would consider joining Trump’s administration, in the right position.
He also predicts that if the election comes down to Biden vs. Trump, that Trump will win.
McCarthy says he will support Donald Trump in his 2024 election bid
After announcing this week that he would resign from Congress before the end of the year, former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy endorsed Donald Trump for president.
“I believe Donald Trump will win, I believe that Republicans will gain more seats in the House, and that Republicans will win the Senate,” McCarthy told CBS News’ Robert Costa in a prerecorded preview of an upcoming interview.
“I will support President Trump,” he said when asked whether his warm words were an endorsement of the former president.
McCarthy, who clinched the speakership after 15 votes in January, was ousted from his position in October after hard-right conservatives lodged an effort to displace him. They publicly said that his work with Democrats to keep the government open defied a deal over how Republicans would approach negotiating the budget. And Trump, who still looms large over a prominent group of populist conservatives in the House, did little to stave off the effort in McCarthy’s hour of need.

Speaking of Kevin McCarthy, there is a stunning clip of him making the rounds on Twitter/X right now.
The Blaze has details:
GOP Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California has said that when he was attending a State of the Union address, the Democrats looked “like America,” while the Republicans looked “like the most restrictive country club in America.” He went on to tout the election of Republican women and minorities that has taken place since that point.
He has made the comments on at least two occasions, including while speaking to the Oxford Union and during remarks at the DealBook Summit.
I don’t know what McCarthy was thinking when he said this.

Not only was this a stupid thing to say, it simply isn’t true. The GOP is more diverse today in every way than it ever has been before now.
