Trump-Endorsed Candidate Vince Fong Replaces Kevin McCarthy – EVOL

Ok, folks, we’ve got another win from Team Trump!

President Trump’s pick for Kevin McCarthy’s replacement in Congress, California Assemblyman Vince Fong, took the win in a special election.

This win is a big deal for Fong.

And a major boost for the Republican Party!

With majority in the House, this gives House Speaker Mike Johnson the extra support to advance his legislative agenda.

But what agenda will he push for?

New York Post reports:

Republican California state Assemblyman Vince Fong emerged victorious Tuesday in the special election race to complete the remainder of ousted former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s term.

Once sworn in, Fong will add some cushion to the narrow majority Republicans hold in the House of Representatives.

The House GOP conference has been grappling with a 217-213 majority for the last several weeks, meaning the GOP could only afford to lose one vote on any bill if Democrats vote along party lines.
