Nov 22, 2022 | Political News

A House Republican revealed at least a dozen Republicans intend to vote against Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy as the anti-Trumper makes a bid for House Speaker.
 
Rep. Bob Good’s (R-Va.) comments suggest Kevin McCarthy will face an intense, uphill battle in his attempt to become House Speaker.
 
“I believe we have at least a dozen or so… that will do what needs to be done on the House Floor to ensure that we get an improvement in the Speaker situation,” Rep. Bob Good told John Fredericks, a political radio host.
 
“You know he’s going to be making deals left and right, as we speak, he’s on the phone now making deals – that’s how he got MTG, right. [McCarthy] cut her a deal…but you’re telling me you got a dozen ‘hard nos’?” Fredericks asked Rep. Good.
