Molinaro backs McCarthy in speaker battle

Oct 03, 2023 12:43 am

Paul Kirby reports in the Daily Freeman that Republican Rep Marc Molinaro said on Oct. 2 he is standing by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. Rep. Matt Gaetz moved to remove McCarthy from his post on Oct. 2, after McCarthy cut a deal with Democrats to keep the government open until at least November. Molinaro took to social media to brag about his support of McCarthy, writing, “With Speaker McCarthy, House Republicans have passed bills to unleash American energy, secure the southern border, protect parents rights (and) combat rising crime." Gaetz filed a “motion to vacate the chair,” and only needs five Republicans to break with McCarthy to oust the speaker. Rep. Pat Ryan, a Democrat who represents the 18th Congressional District said, “This is yet another example of the chaos and dysfunction when MAGA Republicans are in charge.... They’re fighting each other rather than serving the American people, putting at risk Social Security, pay for our troops, food assistance for hungry kids, and more. Now, more than ever, we need patriots in Congress, not political hacks.” Read more about this story in the Daily Freeman.
