GOP Expected To Hold Leadership Elections Tomorrow Despite Calls For Delay

US

Chad Pergram at Fox News writes: "...House Republican leaders intend to hold their leadership elections tomorrow – even though control of the House is uncalled."

  • Comes as NBC News claims that, "more than 60 prominent conservatives, including former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and activist Ginni Thomas, are calling on House and Senate GOP leadership elections to be delayed until after the Dec. 6 Georgia Senate runoff."
  • Republican Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), one of the few Republican winners at last week's midterms, said: "We should not have a Senate GOP leadership vote until we have a clear explanation for why our 2022 campaign efforts failed..."
  • Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is expected to be re-elected Senate leader. Most uncertainty surrounding House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) bid to replace Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House Speaker, seen as imperiled by a poor performance by House Republicans.
  • Rep Andy Biggs (R-AZ) of the GOP Freedom Caucus, the group most likely to block McCarthy's bid, said he doesn't believe McCarthy has the votes to retain his position: "Nobody has 218. and there will be somebody that runs tomorrow."
