Congressman McCarthy Talks Agenda, New GOP Leadership
Congressman Kevin McCarthy spoke at a press conference today on the GOP agenda and the newly elected House Republican leadership team.
Remarks are below, or watch online here.
"I will tell you our number one goal is to get America continuing moving forward. We serve in a divided government, in a divided country. Our goal is to unite us back together again. Our second goal will be to make sure we win the Majority back. Look, we know the challenge of what we’re working on. We want to hit the ground running.
"We know the Democrats have a plan. They want to disrupt, they want to try to impeach, and they want to stall what achievements we’ve been able to move forward. But we know America is too great, for such a small vision. We will work through every state, we know where we have our challenges, to win back in suburban areas, and we will do just that. But I truly believe, America is and will always be the strongest nation on the face of the Earth."
