“House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has set a goal no party has done in 65 years, winning back the majority just two years after losing it,” the Washington Post reports.
“But the California Republican knows better than to over promise and under deliver. So he makes only one guarantee for the 2020 elections.”
Said McCarthy: “House Republicans will gain seats. We will gain seats.”
“McCarthy is doubling down on the GOP’s recent strategy of denouncing Democrats and casting them as socialists who want a complete government takeover of everything from health care to straws. Rather than encourage distance from an unpopular president, McCarthy wants Republicans to stick close to President Trump — an intentional break from the previous tension that existed between the White House and his predecessor, Paul D. Ryan (R-WI), a close McCarthy friend.Save to Favorites
