Another Republican speaks out against McCarthy
Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) says Politico that he is a “hard no” against Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for Speaker of the House.
He also said he would not abstain or miss the vote, which would lower McCarthy’s magic number.
When asked if McCarthy could persuade him to change his mind, Norman replied, “It’s too late for now.”
Norman is the fifth Republican to publicly say he opposes McCarthy, a list that also includes Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz, Matt Rosendale and Bob Good.
