GOP Rep Bob Good Sinks Kevin McCarthy: ‘He’s Part of the Swamp Cartel’

Republican Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) has broken his silence and doomed Kevin McCarthy’s hopes of becoming the next Speaker of the House.

Speaking during an interview with Fox News, Good said he won’t vote for McCarthy to win the speakership because the House GOP leader is “part of the swamp cartel.”

“I won’t vote for Kevin McCarthy tomorrow,” Good said.

“He’s part of the problem.

“He’s not part of the solution.

“I’ll be following the will of my constituents, the voters from Virginia’s Fifth District, hundreds of which have told me over the past couple of years not to support Kevin McCarthy.

“What I told them when I started my first term two years ago is I would judge him by what he did as minority leader.

“And there’s nothing he’s done to earn my vote.

“There’s nothing that indicates to me that he’s going to change his pattern since he’s been in leadership where he’s part of the swamp cartel.

“He’s the reason on the Republican side why we passed massive omnibus spending bills like just got rammed down our throats by Republicans in the Senate.

“He was part of that in leadership since he’s been in leadership over the past eight years,” the congressman said.

“There’s nothing about Kevin McCarthy that indicates that he will bring the change that’s needed to Washington or that’s needed to the Congress, or he’ll bring the fight against the Biden-Schumer agenda and represent the interests of the voters who sent us to Washington to bring real change.”

“If we were to put forth a name right now or over the last few weeks, that person would have suffered all the attacks and retaliation. You’ll see that name tomorrow on the second ballot,” Good said about who he would support for Speaker.

“We shouldn’t be in a hurry to make a bad decision.”

“It’s worth it to fight for a few hours or even a few days to get the best possible person as House Speaker,” Good added.

Good said he thinks 10 to 15 Republicans will not vote for McCarthy on the first ballot which will force the election to go to a second ballot where all bets are off.
