xtraordinary times call for extraordinary measures. Now, a new powerbroker has emerged to sway enough hold-out Republicans to get Kevin McCarthy close to the 218-vote finish line.
As reported by Newsmax on Thursday, Congressional sources have caught wind of a deal being brokered by the influential Club for Growth.
According to the deal, ten members of the “Never McCarthy” coalition may flip their votes, but only on one condition: He does not use his influence to primary them.
“It has been suggested that the Club for Growth deal could move about 10 votes to McCarthy,” Newsmax reported. “While not enough to make McCarthy speaker, it would give him tremendous momentum.”
“Under the Club for Growth’s proposal, McCarthy would agree that his multi-million dollar political action committee, Congressional Leadership Fund, be ‘prohibited from spending money or providing grants to any super PAC to engage in open Republican primaries or against any Republican incumbent’,” the report added.
Club for Growth President David McIntosh told reporters that “assuming these principles are met, Club for Growth will support Kevin McCarthy for speaker.”
