Former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (CA) announced his intention to retire from Congress by the year’s end.

In a statement published in the Wall Street Journal, McCarthy said, “I have decided to depart the House at the end of this year to serve America in new ways. I know my work is only getting started.” 

“I will continue to recruit our country’s best and brightest to run for elected office. The Republican Party is expanding every day, and I am committed to lending my experience to support the next generation of leaders.”

Following Santos’s expulsion, the Republicans now hold a slim majority in the House.

Earlier this month, a group of 105 RINOs took the unprecedented step of siding with the Democrats to expel conservative Republican George Santos from Congress. Santos, recognized as the most conservative freshman member of Congress, became a target for removal. Speculation circulated that Kevin McCarthy spearheaded the efforts to oust Santos, with the aim of assisting the Democrats’ agenda of destroying the country.

In October, McCarthy was removed as House Speaker in a 216-210 vote following Rep. Matt Gaetz’s motion to vacate the chair.

McCarthy now holds the distinction of being the “shortest serving speaker since 1876.” As reported by The Guardian, he also holds the unfortunate title of being “the first speaker of the House forced out of the job in US history.”
