Daily Wire: House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) delivered his first address as speaker shortly after midnight on Saturday following the 15th round of voting for the position. McCarthy won with 216 votes over Rep. Hakeem Jeffries’ (D-NY) 211 votes because five Republican members voted “present,” thus lowering the bar needed for McCarthy to clinch the position (Daily Wire). Post Millennial: Kevin McCarthy: “I know the night is late, but when we come back, our very first bill will repeal the funding for 87,000 new IRS agents” (Twitter). Host Jesse Kelly: These are the concessions Kevin McCarthy made to get the votes. Do keep in mind that 90% of the GOP pundit-class fought against these things for the last few days. You would have had none of this if they got their way (Twitter).
