SUGAR LAND, TX — Fort Bend County Republican Party Chairman Bobby Eberle issued the following statement following the election of Kevin McCarthy as speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives following fifteen rounds of voting.
“What we witnessed in Washington, DC during the voting for speaker of the House, was a group of dedicated conservatives fighting courageously for necessary change. Had those twenty patriots not spoken up, not stuck together, and had they simply ‘fallen in line,’ we’d have had business as usual in the ‘people’s house.’ That prospect is simply unacceptable.
“Americans voted to put Republicans in charge of the House of Representatives because we all realize that Washington, DC is broken, and it must be repaired… not next year, not in five years, but now. This was our opportunity, and the concessions for which the twenty conservatives fought will return power to the people. Fighting for conservative principles is always worth the fight.
“In the face of incredible pressure from the media, political commentators, and members of their own party, these men and women stood up to the status quo and won. It is my hope that the American people will see this process as a win for them, because it truly is.
“Now, Congress can get to work. Through the efforts of these twenty leaders, the House can serve as a true check to the Biden administration and the Democrat-run Senate. Thank you to the twenty who fought the good fight and stood up for conservative values and against the status quo and the swamp.”
