The Republicans are expected to vote for leadership roles on Tuesday even though Democrats are working to steal the House.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Former House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is likely to run against House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to become the next speaker of the House if Republicans lock down a majority in the lower chamber, a member of the powerful conservative group confirmed on Sunday.
Biggs has been critical of McCarthy's leadership in the minority, voicing concerns that the California Republican won't prioritize issues important to the far-right flank of the party. CNN first reported the news of Biggs's likely bid against McCarthy.
"I think we need to have a real discussion about whether he should be the speaker or not," Biggs told reporters on Thursday.
"I think that his statement recently that we shouldn't impeach Secretary Mayorkas indicates that maybe we're not going to be as aggressive going forward as we should be. I think we need to have a very positive statement of what we're going to accomplish and do, and I haven't seen that yet," he added. "That's — those are things that I think we should have a very frank discussion internally about, where we're going to be going forward."
Republicans may retake the House of Representatives after a lack-luster performance in the 2022 midterm elections.
The United States is now under a communist assault from within. We need strong leadership.
