- Rep. Kevin McCarthy told his fellow Republicans “I earned this job” during a heated conference meeting Tuesday morning, just hours before the full chamber was expected to vote on his bid to be speaker of the House.
- “I earned this job,” said McCarthy (R-Calif.). “We earned this majority, and God damn it, we are going to win it today.”
- However, the GOP leader also admitted that he knows he won’t have the 218 votes likely needed to win on the first ballot, according to CNN, but vowed not to stand down if his initial bid fails.
