Darrell Issa Responds to McCarthy Announcement in Speaker Race

WASHINGTON, DC –  Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) today released a statement following House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s announcement that he was withdrawing from the race to become Speaker of the House:

“Kevin McCarthy demonstrated the character of a true leader by taking a step back and putting the interests of our Conference ahead of his own.  He remains our Leader and maintains the respect and confidence of his colleagues. Now, it’s incumbent upon us to have a robust conversation about the direction and future of our party. I pledge to play a constructive role in that discussion and hope my colleagues will do the same as we work to choose a Speaker who best represents the values and aspirations of the American people.”
