GOP Leader McCarthy has some harsh words for Democratic leadership, now that they will be in the majority. The Washington Examiner reports:
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Thursday mocked the likely incoming Democratic House leadership team as the “old, old past.”
“We’re talking about the future. The Democrats are going to elect the past,” McCarthy said on Fox News.
“Think about that,” he said. “Nancy Pelosi is speaker, Steny Hoyer is now running as the majority … leader, and Clyburn will become their whip?”
Pelosi, the likely next speaker of the House from California, is 78. Hoyer, now the minority whip from Maryland is 79, and James Clyburn, D-S.C., is 78.
Pelosi’s appointment is a welcome relief for Conservatives who have been sparring with her for years. Fresh faces in Democrat leadership would likely energize the base.
