Kevin McCarthy issues optimistic statement after being reelected leader of House Republicans

GOP House minority leader Kevin McCarthy has easily won reelection and faced no opposition.

After the vote, McCarthy got a standing ovation.

McCarthy tweeted “This is the most united & energized I have ever seen House Republicans. We delivered a historic political upset fueled by conservative women, minorities, and veterans. And we’re just getting started.”

The GOP House greatly reduced their disadvantage during the 2020 election, flipping several seats.
