(USNewsMag.com) – In an attempt to increase the size of the GOP majority in the House, Kevin McCarthy, the House Speaker, who is a Republican from California, will embark on his initial campaign tour of the 2024 election cycle. The New Mexico district is in one of the most difficult and close-to-call districts. Currently, a Democrat occupies this seat.
This was McCarthy’s first appearance on the campaign trail during this election season, and it took him to a congressional district that is still rated too close to call, which indicates that a Republican candidate has a chance of winning the seat.
McCarthy will begin his campaign tour in New Mexico’s Second District, where he will show his support for Republican candidate Yvette Herrell. Representative Gabe Vasquez of New Mexico, a Democrat, is now serving in this position in Congress after defeating Herrell, the incumbent, in 2022 by a margin of fewer than 1,400 ballots. During this trip, McCarthy will be lending his support to Herrell’s candidacy and working to build support so she can reclaim the House seat she formerly held.
Herrell told those gathered that America is counting on them to be brave and powerful They have just more than a year to do it correctly, and they will.
McCarthy led hundreds of her supporters to their feet and gave her a rousing round of applause.
He said that New Mexico needs Herrell back in her House seat because she is a strong conservative leader. While in Washington, she prioritized the needs of her people from New Mexico by advocating for their constitutional rights, market freedom, and budgetary discipline. She has his complete support, and he wants to work with her again in the next Congress.
Conference Chair, Republican, Elise Stefanik (NY), Majority Whip, Republican, Tom Emmer (MN), and Majority Leader, Republican, Steve Scalise (LA) all seem to be on board with the Speaker’s decision to support Herrell.
McCarthy is hosting a fundraiser with Herrell as the featured speaker in the hopes of raising over $100,000 for her campaign.
