Can the ‘Never Kevin’ caucus hold the line?


The small band of far-right firebrands who could derail Kevin McCarthy’s speaker bid is facing enormous pressure to cave and throw their support to the California Republican ahead of the Jan. 3 floor vote.

The “Never Kevin” Republicans are being hammered by Mark Levin and other conservative media personalities who say McCarthy has earned the job. Because the House cannot move on to any other business until it elects a speaker, border-state conservatives say the GOP can’t delay as the nation faces a new surge of illegal border crossings in Texas. And the founding chairman of the conservative Freedom Caucus, Rep. Jim Jordan, who has endorsed McCarthy, says GOP committees won’t be able to meet and launch investigationsinto the Biden administration until Republicans unify behind a leader.
