MAGA Republican Opposes Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker

MAGA Republican Opposes Kevin McCarthy for House Speaker

Many believe that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will run opposed in his bid to become the new House Speaker once republicans regain the majority.

However, at least one MAGA republican says “not so fast.”

Andy Biggs is the former House Freedom Caucus Chairman, and he’s not so certain that McCarthy is the right man for the job.

“I think we need to have a real discussion about whether he should be the speaker or not,” Biggs proclaimed on Thursday.

Biggs believes that McCarthy  may not be a strong enough candidate for the party:

“He’s back-pedaled on things like impeachment. In some ways, that indicates a willingness to be weakening the oversight authority that we need to have, and the leverage points we need to have in order to deal with a Democrat president.”
