“WASHINGTON — Representative Kevin McCarthy on Thursday abruptly took himself out of the race to succeed John A. Boehner as House speaker, apparently undone by the same forces that drove Mr. Boehner to resign.
“I have the deepest respect and regard for each member of the conference and our team as a whole,” Mr. McCarthy said in a prepared statement shortly after a meeting in which he told Republicans of his decision. “It is imperative for us to unite and work together on the challenges facing our country. …”
I assumed when Boehner fell on his sword that we would get someone evem worse like Kevin McCarthy or Paul Ryan (who is not a candidate), but that might not be the case.
Note: Matt Lewis, a top cuckservative, is saying it might have something to do with Chuck Johnson exposing McCarthy’s affair.
