Kevin McCarthy CAREER Prediction – Is This The End?

Former GOP Advisor Predicts The End Of Kevin McCarthy

(PatriotWise.com) – Last weekend, one of the NeverTrumpers who frequently appears on MSNBC predicted that Kevin McCarthy would never become the Speaker of the House.

Tara Setmayer, a former Republican, also told MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart that Speaker Nancy Pelosi would continue to be the boss and no Republican can “hold a candle to her.”

This is proof that NeverTrump former Republicans aren’t appearing on MSNBC because they offer whip-smart political insights and analysis.

Tara Setmayer was wrong on both counts.

Two days after Setmayer predicted that McCarthy would never become speaker, the House Republican conference nominated Kevin McCarthy as their candidate for Speaker of the House by a secret ballot vote of 188 to 31.

As the GOP candidate, McCarthy is the favorite to become Speaker since Republicans are projected to hold 220 seats and a candidate for speaker has to win 218 votes to secure the gavel.

McCarthy faced an 11th-hour challenge for the nomination from Arizona Republican Andy Biggs, a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

In addition to nominating McCarthy, the Republican conference chose Congressman Steve Scalise as majority leader and reelected Elise Stefanik the GOP conference chair. Tom Emmer, the chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee, won a three-way race for Republican Whip, the third-highest ranking position.

McCarthy told his GOP colleagues that he would be a “listener” striving to “build consensus from the bottom up” instead of “commanding the agenda from the top down.”

If he wins the Speaker’s gavel, McCarthy has pledged to put an end to Nancy Pelosi’s endless proxy voting and reopen the US Capitol building.

McCarthy also vowed to entrust House committees with drafting and marking up bills and would marshal resources to allow the House to conduct oversight of the Biden administration.

Meanwhile, Setmayer’s prediction about Nancy Pelosi also aged poorly as well.

Just four days later, Nancy Pelosi announced that she would not be running for Democrat leadership in the new Congress.
