McCarthy’s Speakership ‘Absolutely Safe’ After Debt Ceiling Deal, GOP Rep Says

  • Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s role is “absolutely safe” despite some Republican pushback over his deal with President Joe Biden over the debt ceiling, according to Rep. Garret Graves (R-LA).
  • Graves, who helped lead the negotiations, appeared Sunday on CBS News’s “Face the Nation” with host Margaret Brennan and touted the deal as a “huge accomplishment.” When pressed on comments by Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) criticizing McCarthy, Graves said the speaker is in the clear.
  • “I’ll tell you right now, Speaker McCarthy’s position is absolutely safe,” Graves said. “He is going to continue delivering wins for the country, changing the direction of Washington and being more representative of the priorities of Americans across the country. I have no doubt his position is safe, and we’re going to keep marching forward continuing to build upon the historic wins that he’s been able to achieve this year.”
